Extrait de la présentation en ligne :

"The interdisciplinary 9-month Masters programme in Migration Studies at the University of Oxford is jointly offered by the School of Anthropology and the Oxford Department of International Development. The course draws on the intellectual resources of its two parent departments and the three world-leading migration research centres at Oxford (COMPAS, IMI and RSC). The programme allows students to explore human mobility in a global perspective, and to address the causes and consequences of migration and how these are shaped by governments, societies, and migrants themselves.

The degree consists of four components, plus a dissertation :
- International migration in the social sciences ;
- Key themes in international migration ;
- Thematic and regional options ;
- Quantitative and qualitative research methods.

Teaching on the degree is provided by leading scholars in the field and combines lectures, small tutorial groups, and discussion seminars. Students have individual dissertation supervision. Teaching is problem-focused and aims to give students critical analytical skills.

Admissions : Students should have a relevant first degree in the social sciences or humanities at either a first-class or high upper second-class standard (or equivalent) to be eligible for competitive consideration on the degree programme. Special consideration may be given to those with professional backgrounds in the migration field, such as those who have worked in relevant government departments, international agencies or civil society organisations.

General information on the application process and deadlines are available from the University’s central admissions webpages : Forthcoming application deadlines for entry in 2012 are : January 20 and March 9."
