MA New Migration and Social Policy

If you are a professional working in multi-agency migration related settings or areas of local government (such as housing, community and safety, health, youth services and social care) and you are looking to enhance your career prospects, then consider registering for our New Migration and Social Policy programme.

The New Migration and Social Policy programme explores the social, economic and political causes and effects of new migration. It examines the nature of new migrant populations and the challenges faced by migrants trying to settle in a new country, and the policymakers and service providers with responsibility for meeting their settlement needs and building cohesive communities. The programme addresses the ways that social policy has been created and adapted in order to accommodate the changing fabric of urban and rural populations that have experienced high levels of inward migration.

The New Migration programme can be taken at Masters Diploma and Certificate levels; you can take this course on a full-time basis (1 year) or part-time (2 years).
