The purpose of the Migration Studies graduate program of TED University (thesis or non-thesis) is to provide practical and academic knowledge about Tukey's migration movements, management of the migration and the integration of the immigrants, and parallel to all these to raise experts and academics equipped with this knowledge.


Since the beginning of the 21st century, there has been an escalation in migration and human mobility for different reasons. Neo-liberal structural adjustment policies, globalization, flexibility in the global labor market, poverty, armed conflicts, and finally, religious, ethnic, and cultural discrimination made the migration either an obligation or opportunity for different societal strata. 

In the meantime, migration became a common phenomenon, spread geographically, and now most of the world's countries stand as the receiving country, sending country, transitory country, or as three of them at the same time.

The graduates of the TED University Migration Studies Program;

  • are equipped with methodological competency in migration studies.
  • became academically competent in multidisciplinary (political, economic, sociological, and psychological dimensions) migration studies.
  • have the capability in different institutional structures and constitutions, which are working on migration.
  • know the legal framework about the national and international migration and migration administration.
  • informed about the fundamental disquieting issues in the migration, and are also informed about the difficulties in immigrants' lives.
  • know about the different shareholders in this field and grasp how the collaboration with these shareholders can be improved.
  • make predictions, detect the prior fields, do research, and develop policy recommendations with the insight he/she acquired in his/her studies.


The alumni, who graduated from the program, can study at the universities interested in the migration subject and work in public institutions, international organizations, and finally in non-governmental organizations that raise its impacts gradually in the field.
