The post-graduate Program ‘Migration Studies: Management of Migratory and Refugee Flows in Europe’ is a new, original concept instigated by the Department of Sociology of the University of the Aegean. It is the first international Master’s degree in Migration Studies (MMS) in Greece to be entirely taught in English and one of the few European Courses that articulately combines interdisciplinary perspectives on issues of migration. The Course aims to equip students with the skills and knowledge to understand the multifaceted phenomenon of migration, forced relocation, human rights, global health, discrimination and integration.
Unique approach – contemporary curriculum:
The University of the Aegean, with a distinct semantic meaning as it is based in Mytelene, Lesvos, offers a rich and comprehensive curriculum and a unique approach. It comprises on-line courses as well as fieldwork and workshops available for students to gain hands-on experience in the existing refugee accommodation facilities of Lesvos. Students will thus gain a multidisciplinary perspective on migration studies through courses and extracurricular opportunities.
