For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via This interdisciplinary, nine-month masterâ??s degree analyses global migration and mobility, in historical context, and as part of the broader processes of development and social change. Taught by world-class researchers, the course will introduce you to key migration and mobility-related concepts, methods and theories across the social sciences, and prepare you for further research or a professional career. Aims The course provides a broad, theoretical understanding of human mobility and the role of both internal and international migration in economic and political processes, social change and globalisation, as well as an overview of the major debates and literature on contemporary migration from different disciplinary perspectives in the social sciences. You will gain skills in critical analysis and research, and should develop an ability to contribute new perspectives to the study of migration. You should also gain an understanding of the dilemmas facing policy-makers at both national and international level, an understanding of the value of critical perspective for both academic and policy work, as well as the ability to help transfer theoretical knowledge to policy-oriented research. Structure In the first and second terms you will follow three core courses: The Politics of Movement: International Migration in the Social Sciences Migration, Globalisation and Social Transformation Methods in Social Research These will be supplemented by a fortnightly discussion class, Keywords: a Key to Migration Debates and Social Theory. In the second term, you will choose two option courses from a list which changes from year to year, and in the final term, you will write a dissertation of up to 15,000 words. Teaching Apart from four core faculty members who are dedicated to this degree, research staff from Oxfordâ??s internationally renowned Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) and other units will provide additional teaching input. Teaching on the degree is both theory- and problem-focused and is delivered through a combination of lecture courses, classes and tutorials, seminars, student-led presentations, essays and library work. You will be expected to prepare for each lecture, class or tutorial by reading a selection of recommended book chapters, articles and working papers. The MSc is a demanding course and, as is typical at Oxford, you will be expected to keep up with a considerable reading workload. Class sizes are small to mid-size â?? generally between 5 and 26 students â?? encouraging active participation and enabling students to learn from each other. Assessment Assessment consists of formative and summative assessment. Formative assessment, which does not count towards your final degree, but helps you to develop your analytical and writing skills, will be in the form of short essays (1,500 words), response papers and presentations. Summative assessment, which will count towards your final degree, currently takes the form of a 5,000-word essay, written exams, a research portfolio and a 15,000-word dissertation.
