It brings together a broad spectrum of academics and practitioners from the humanities, social sciences and public affairs to examine the cultural, social, economic and political implications of the movement and transnational settlement of people. The program supports historically-informed and forward-looking approaches to the analysis of cultural and social identities, diversity and integration, exile and memory, forced migration, and refugee communities.
The two-year Migration and Diaspora Studies (MDS) program from Carleton University offers three pathways: coursework-only, research essay and thesis. There are also two graduate diplomas (GDips).
Located in the heart of Canada’s National Capital Region, Ottawa offers unparalleled access to resources and opportunities for co-ops and other experiential opportunities. Students in this graduate program will develop skills and credentials to position them for law school or PhD programs in a variety of disciplines, as well as jobs in public service, cultural institutions and creative industries, migration and humanitarian INGOs, migration and settlement-related agencies, and in public museums and heritage sites.
