The Migration Studies program offered by Tel Aviv University is a one-year (3 semesters) M.A. program designed to prepare students for leadership roles in humanitarian organizations addressing global migration issues. From debates on free movement in Europe to the Ukrainian refugee situation, many migration issues are at the forefront of today’s discussions and politics.

This interdisciplinary program is designed to provide students with opportunities to critically engage with global issues surrounding migration and policy debates. The program covers a range of topics, including immigration and citizenship policies, perspectives on refugees, asylum seekers and humanitarian aid, and the challenges of social, cultural and economic integration. Students can expect to learn theories, research tools, and analytical models in these areas.

The program highlights world-leading faculty and expert practitioners in the field of migration, offering students specialization in global migration and policy fields with hands-on professional workshops. Additionally, students have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad in one of several exchange programs at universities affiliated with TAU.

However, note that this track is not open to students whose enrollment in the Migration Studies program is supported by United States Federal Student Aid due to restrictions on the use of such aid. Students will also be able to enjoy cultural evening activities and overnight excursions around the country in addition to the coursework.

By the end of the Migration Studies program, students will have gained practical experience and skills necessary to become leaders for real social change, and they will have gained an appreciation for Tel Aviv, a city with a rich immigrant history.
