New MA Program in International Migration Studies at CUNY’s GC

A new M.A. program in International Migration Studies is starting at the CUNY Graduate Center. It is the first such program on the East Coast.

The program’s innovative 30-credit curriculum includes four foundational courses in International Migration, Global Immigrant Cities, Research Methods, and Migration Policy.  Students will then choose among a rich array of elective courses offered in varied academic fields.  They will complete the program with an individual capstone project under guidance from a faculty member.

The program readies students for opportunities in advocacy, policy-making, social services, education, human resources, and labor management; it is also excellent preparation for doctoral study.

CUNY has a notable concentration of top migration scholars, giving students both access to academic excellence at a fraction of the cost of other universities and the ability to study international migration in one of the world’s most diverse and global cities.  It just doesn’t get more exciting than this!

The program is now accepting applications for the fall 2018 semester (deadline: 4/15/18). Contact Prof. Els de Graauw ( for more information.
