Oxford announces new MSc in Migration Studies
- 30 November 2009
- MSc in Migration Studies
A new 9-month MSc in Migration Studies at Oxford University has been jointly established by the School of Anthropology and the Oxford Department of International Development
The course draws on the intellectual resources of its two parent departments and three world leading migration research centres at Oxford: the ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS); the International Migration Institute (IMI); and the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC). Between them, the three centres have over 25 full-time researchers and draw in many more across the University. The establishment of the MSc in Migration Studies represents a landmark in the development of migration studies at Oxford.
The programme allows students to explore human mobility in a historical and global perspective, and to tackle the complex relation between global political economy, migratory experiences, and government and social responses.
