MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies: The students' perspective
- 19 February 2014
Alumni talk about their experiences on the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies
We live in a rapidly changing world in which refugees and forced migration have a significant impact on the economic, political and social agendas of sovereign states, intergovernmental agencies and civil society groups.
Developing an understanding of the causes and consequences of forced migration and gaining the intellectual and practical skills to deal effectively with its challenges are essential for the management of effective programmes to assist refugees and other forced migrants.
The MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies is an interdisciplinary degree taught by leading experts in the field of forced migration from international law, politics and international relations, anthropology, and other disciplines. The course enables participants to explore forced migration through a thesis, a group research essay, and a range of required courses.
