The Master of Arts program in Migration and Refugee Studies is an interdisciplinary program that aims to equip graduates with critical knowledge, research methods, and analytical skills related to current theoretical, legal, political, economic, social, demographic, and psychological issues in migration and refugee studies. The program offers two concentration options, migration or refugee studies, and prepares graduates for careers within governmental, non-governmental, and international agencies, as well as universities, research organizations, and private corporations dealing with issues related to migration and refugee movements.
Applicants seeking admission to the Master’s program should have an undergraduate degree in Humanities and/or Social Sciences of high standing, equivalent to a B grade or higher.

Prerequisites may be assigned, depending on the student’s academic background, and students with related work, research, or volunteer experience will be given priority. All students are required to complete a thesis according to university regulations. After completion of the thesis, it must be defended in an oral examination during which questions may be asked regarding any aspect of the thesis itself or of courses taken in the program, particularly as they may relate to the thesis.
