What are the causes, patterns and effects of international migration? What has been the fate of refugees seeking to escape the conflicts in Northern Africa and the Middle East? How will global warming affect human mobility in the future? We offer a master degree in Advanced Migration Studies at the University of Copenhagen. 


The Master’s degree in Advanced Migration Studies at University of Copenhagen is an ambitious, interdisciplinary two-year degree programme offered in English that provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the opportunities and challenges presented by international migration. The programme combines humanities and social science approaches to migration, including ethnology, anthropology, sociology, sociology of religion, history, philosophy, political science, sociolinguistics, education, and literary and media studies.

Students obtain a range of high-level competences as regards multi-dimensional analyses of migration and integration in a wide range of contexts, including the competence to understand the causes, patterns and effects of international migration, understand and use both quantitative and qualitative methods, as well as cultural analysis, analysis of diversity politics, analysis of the role of religion in diverse societies, conflict analysis, and diversity management and administration.

Profile and Career

  • Migration and mobility pervade and transform today’s societies and have done so throughout history. Virtually every aspect of society is influenced and shaped by migration, including labour markets, education systems, culture, politics, religion and civil society. 
  • These developments present both opportunities and challenges. Opportunities may involve filling labour market shortages, as well as development and cultural enrichment; while challenges concern catering for the needs of refugees, the brain drain in developing countries, and preventing tensions and conflicts between cultural groups in host societies.
