Program summary

The Minor program in Critical Migration Studies offers students an understanding of the causes and consequences of international migration in sending, transit and receiving societies. Issues of ethnic diversity, pluralism and social equity are highlighted. The Minor is interdisciplinary in content and method; through data-driven coursework and experiential learning, students will develop a suite of transferable skills in research design, quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and written, oral and digital communication. Paired with a discipline-specific Major, graduates of the program will have a comparative advantage in the labour market and graduate school market due to concrete training and experience in research and data analysis, and knowledge of migration and ethnic diversity grounded in material conditions.
