During this webinar, Specialisation Coordinator Melissa Siegel will deep-dive into the contents and specificities of the specialisation. With the support of our current master’s students and alumni, it will be a session dedicated to answering your questions and providing you with all of the information necessary to assist you in choosing your MPP specialisation.
The specialisation in Migration Studies is one of the seven specialisations offered within the Master of Science in Public Policy and Human Development, a one-year double-degree programme run by United Nations University-MERIT and Maastricht University in Maastricht, the Netherlands.
This specialisation trains students for the international labour market as policy advisors, practitioners, researchers, etc., working for governments, international organisations or academic institutions. Migration is a controversial topic in the international and national policy arena and the effects of migration on migrants, their families and communities in the destination and origin countries need to be studied carefully. While mass media often focus on a few spectacularly problematic cases, the courses in this specialisation study the key issues in-depth and with scientific rigour.
