MSc in Migration Studies

The interdisciplinary MSc in Migration Studies allows students to explore human mobility as an intrinsic part of the broader processes of development and global change; and to address the causes and consequences of migration and how these are shaped by governments, societies, and migrants themselves.

The programme is jointly offered by the School of Anthropology (SAME) and the Oxford Department of International Development (ODID). The course draws on the intellectual resources of its two parent departments and migration research centres at Oxford.
