Most master’s degrees are offered as a Master of Arts or a Master of Science. Depending on the career route chosen, a master’s can boost one’s career or open previously closed doors.

What is a Master in Migration Studies? Research is a large component of this degree. Students learn immigration policies, research methods, labor migration, displacement and development in the modern world, and global trends. Individual course paths can be tailored depending on the scholar’s interests and future career goals. Students learn various aspects of law and policy and how to practice them in the field. Most degree programs are completed in two years and include a thesis. Many also offer an opportunity for study abroad.

The program teaches participants how to campaign and perform advocacy work. Learning proper research methods not only helps in the chosen career field, but also helps students properly research other things in their life that benefit from quality information from healthcare and car buying to owning a home.  

To prepare financially, research the various options available, from the various costs to the course load required, before making a decision on the right program for the student and his or her budget. Reaching out to schools for a current cost rundown is also suggested.

Program graduates have taken their Master in Migration Studies and continued with their education to become doctors and lawyers. Many have also gone on to work for global organizations like the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. Career paths in human rights, immigration, humanitarian and refugee work are all viable options. Many governmental and non-governmental organizations and bodies offer potential job opportunities for graduates. Grassroots organizations, entrepreneurship, journalism and diplomacy provide additional career choices.

Programs are available in various universities around the world or online for the student who needs a flexible schedule. To begin the process, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The serious ethnic conflicts of the region, the demand for countries to meet European norms in the area of minority issues, the increase in migration, and the simultaneous growth of xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and homophobia all contribute to a pressing need in Eastern and Central Europe for highly trained professionals who have the insight and expertise to identify the main political, social and psychological reasons behind tensions and discriminations and who are also equipped with the skills and techniques to handle and moderate these conflicts. -
