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.
The Master in Migration Studies is a two-year, 34-unit program. Students start the program at the University of San Francisco in the first semester followed by a semester at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City (classes are conducted in English). The entire second year of study is offered at the University of San Francisco. The program consists of six core courses (required), four special topics courses, and four one-unit research seminars. Summer immersions and fieldwork are available throughout the world – including opportunities offered worldwide by the more than 200 Jesuit universities and Jesuit-affiliated institutes and social service agencies.
