The priority application date is February 1, 2021.

How to Apply

With more than 230 million global citizens living outside their home countries, international migration is one of the most critical issues facing the global community in the 21st century. The challenges that these global citizens face are the focus of this master’s program, which prepares professionals to better the lives of migrants and refugees throughout the world.

Study Abroad

Our program includes the option of taking one semester of study at the prestigious Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. As a unique binational program, students take classes together with local graduate students in Migration Studies. While in Mexico, students have the opportunity to intern with populations that migrate through the city. We also offer a spring break immersion trip to Rome and Italy, where students study refugee crisis responses in Europe.


Internships and Framework

The program works with local and national government bodies, non-governmental organizations, grassroots organizations, and cultural resources to provide students with the tools for on-the-ground research and opportunities for professional experience.
