Our MA in Migration and Diaspora Studies is a broad-based degree for students who want to receive research training in Migration, and Diaspora, as well as Humanitarian and Refugee Studies, including a relevant language as part of the specialisation.

The degree prepares you to proceed to advanced postgraduate research or to work as practitioners in fields related to Migration, Refugees and Humanitarian relief.

The degree offers students a chance to pursue their specific areas of interest by selecting from optional modules. You will have the option of studying the degree from either:

  • A broad-based perspective enhancing your knowledge in light of continuing contemporary research;
  • A specific area, allowing you to study diaspora and migration issues in-depth in relation to a particular discipline or region.

The MA in Migration and Diaspora Studies is considerably enriched by the SOAS Centre for Migration and Diaspora Studies, which runs seminars, films and public lectures and also hosts a number of international scholars. The Centre is also a part of a migration research network of London colleges including LSE and UCL. Students on the programme, therefore, have unparalleled access to a critical body of scholars and scholarship on migration and diaspora related issues.

This programme has a first-rate graduate employability record, with graduates moving on to find employment in lectureships and professorships throughout the world in areas such as information and technology, government service, the media and tourism.

Prospective students are encouraged to contact the Programme Convenor, at an early stage of their application to seek advice on the most appropriate options for study.
