Migration Studies

This programme addresses the nature of migration and migration processes around the world, the consequences of migration for today's societies, and issues that shape migrants' life chances. The Sussex Centre for Migration Research (SCMR) has an oustanding global reputation and hosts international speakers for its seminar series and annual conference. These events (and others) form a hub through which our students learn and form networks with academics and fellow students from all over the world. You will benefit from an interdisciplinary approach that allows you to choose optional modules according to your interests and career aspirations.
