MA in Migration & Displacement, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa (31 August)

The African Centre for Migration & Society (ACMS) at the University of the Witwatersrand invites graduate students to apply to undertake an MA in Migration and Displacement with us in 2017. ACMS enrols a maximum of 25 MA students each year from various academic backgrounds and countries.

The MA programme is designed to give students a comprehensive conceptual framework for understanding and analysing a wide range of topics in the field of migration and displacement. It also equips graduate students with the practical skills necessary to understand, analyse and advise on the drivers, impacts and management of migration within academia, government, business and non-profit organisations, where many of the programme’s alumni are currently employed. Students are strongly encouraged to partake in the Centre’s research activities, and are frequently invited to publish and present on their work done as part of this programme.

The MA (coursework and research) programme can either be undertaken full-time for a year or part-time over two years and consists of three courses and a research report.

The deadline for MA applications for 2017 is 31 August 2016.
