The programme welcomes students of different academic backgrounds to develop a critical and transdisciplinary understanding of ethnicity and migration, integrating the humanities and the social sciences. It is set in an international community of students and faculty with numerous visiting researchers and academic activities.
By providing a unique curriculum that enables a comprehensive grasp of the field of Ethnic and Migration Studies as well as in depth specialisation through, for example, elective courses, internships, studies abroad, individual tutorials, the programme prepares you for positions in local, national and international organisations, administration, business, government, media and the cultural sector, as well as for further postgraduate studies.
Career opportunities As the programme offers possibilities of studies abroad, elective courses and internships, students may tailor their education towards a special interest, profession or field of expertise. The programme therefore prepares for wide segments of the labour market, wherever expertise in migration and ethnic relations is needed, including work in governmental and non-governmental organisations, local and regional administration, business and communication, social work and activism, cultural analysis, journalism and commentary in the public sector, as well as further postgraduate studies and research.
