Migration, Society and Policy MA

Registrations are open for the 2017-2018 edition of Middlesex University Master’s Degree “Migration, Society and Policy”.

With migration regularly at the top of the European and global agenda, the need for skilled professionals who can make sense of the raw data, grasp complex policy systems and assess their impact on contemporary societies is more apparent than ever.

This master’s degree offers a contemporary and interdisciplinary focus on migration and related socio-political and policy issues, combining theoretical, methodological and practice-oriented training relevant to a number of career routes in academia, policy-making, the public sector, the community sector and NGOs.

It features a wide range of study options from disciplines such as law, politics and sociology, as well as incorporating opportunities to undertake field trips, placements and internships, both locally and internationally.
