Master of Arts in Migration Studies

Miriam College

Master of Arts in Migration Studies (Thesis) / Master in Migration Studies (Non Thesis)

The Migration Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program committed to the critical study and analysis of contemporary issues and challenges in migration. The program draws upon theories and knowledge from different social science disciplines to understand the multi-dimensional nature of migration as a social process that inter-weaves with politics, economics, culture, legal systems and other social forces that impinge on people crossing geographical borders. A specific focus of the program is the cross-cutting theme of gender as a crucial element in the process of migration. Graduates of this course are expected to acquire a broader perspective and knowledge of the nature of migration as part of globalization processes that have social, economic and political impacts and dimensions.
