The Master’s in Migration was created on the initiative and with the support of the Institut Convergences Migrations and is co-accredited by EHESS and the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
The program responds to the growing need for expertise on migration issues, asylum, and discrimination. It aims to train specialists who benefit from a solid education in several disciplines: law, economics, demography, history, sociology, geography, and anthropology. The first objective is to acquire knowledge of the issues involved in migration, migration systems throughout the world, the place of migration in demographic dynamics, the legal bases and procedures, the determinants of migration and the economic issues involved, not to mention the analysis of controversies on immigration.
The other objective of the program is to develop students’ ability to produce, based on qualitative and quantitative data collection, savoirs on the living and health conditions of migrants, their motivations, their trajectories, and experiences. The training in methodologies with a view to professionalization is embodied through the realization of a common field of investigation and the individualized follow-up of students by a tutor throughout their training.
The added value of this new program is that it builds a truly interdisciplinary core curriculum, based on mandatory courses in the main disciplines (law, geography, history, anthropology/sociology, economics, etc.), to which are added workshops that put students in contact with field actors, particularly from the health sector. A wide range of existing courses and seminars at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and at EHESS meet students’ thematic and disciplinary needs.
The aim is to qualify researchers and professionals specializing in the field of migration for work in international organizations, ministries, local authorities, public cultural or heritage institutions, NGOs, etc.
