MA Migration Studies

The Sussex MA in Migration Studies was launched in 1997, making it the first MA in this field in the UK. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the study of contemporary migration worldwide, with core teaching staff drawn from Geography, Anthropology, Law and Political Science. Students come from a wide range of backgounds, and include those with practical policy experience who want to deepen their understanding of migration issues in a wider context, as well as others seeking to develop an interest in the field through exposure to cutting edge research and policy analysis.

Sussex is also the only University in the UK where you can register for a research degree in Migration Studies. Our MSc in Social Research Methods provides a route into graduate research for a DPhil in Migration, or can be taken as a stand-alone degree for those wishing to acquire research skills relevant to migration policy. We also may have ESRC quota awards for interdisciplinary study at doctoral level
