Course content

The MA in Contemporary Migration and Diaspora Studies is an exciting new, inter-disciplinary taught programme addressing all aspects of migration, integration and diaspora studies in Ireland. The programme will fill a major gap in teaching and research, as there is currently no specialist postgraduate programme in the jurisdiction focusing on this field. It will also meet the needs of the developing voluntary sector in Ireland, which wishes to develop its own research and advocacy programmes and to professionalise its staff capacities.
