About International Migration at University of Kent Brussels School of International Studies

The MA in International Migration programme allows students to study migration - including human trafficking, asylum and forced migration as well as integration and citizenship - in the context of other fields or to focus on different aspects of migration. International Migration allows students to gain an in-depth understanding of the broader field of migration while enabling them either to specialise in migration or to examine the links between migration and fields ranging from development economics and conflict analysis to human rights law or international migration law.

The aims of the MA in International Migration are to:

  • Provide students with a research-active teaching environment which gives them a good grounding in the study of social science in general and migration in particular.
  • Offer a critical perspective of the interplay between migration and political, economic and 
    social systems and processes.
  • Ensure that students acquire a solid understanding of methodologies for the study of 
    social science in general, and in the application of those understandings to the study of 
    migration in particular.
  • Ensure that students acquire a solid understanding of major theoretical approaches to 
    migration, the historical development of contemporary migration, and the application of 
    theoretical and historical knowledge to the analysis and understanding of contemporary 
    issues and cases in the field.
  • Ensure that students acquire the necessary skills for advanced assessment of 
    contemporary problems in migration and their solutions.
  • Develop students' general research skills and personal skills (transferable skills), in 
    particular through a substantial dissertation.

Programme Structure:

The MA in International Migration is offered in both the Standard (90 ECTS credits) and the Extended version (120 ECTS credits) and in each case students may take the programme with or without a secondary specialisation.
