Program Description

Master in Migration Studies (MIMS)

University of San Francisco - College of Arts & Sciences

Preparing professionals and leaders to address the needs of migrants and refugees around the world.

With more than 230 million global citizens living outside their home countries, international migration is one of the most critical issues facing the global community in the 21st century. The challenges that these global citizens face are the focus of this Master’s program, which prepares professionals to better the lives of migrants and refugees throughout the world.

Students study topics of global migration with top researchers, professors, project practitioners, and policy makers in the field of migration studies. The program includes one semester of studies at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. Graduates are prepared for careers in local, state and national governmental agencies; policy think tanks and policy and planning consulting firms; community-based non profits and non-governmental organizations; international agencies; advocacy and public interest organizations; philanthropic organizations and foundations; and other private-sector entities.
