MSc International Migration and Public Policy

Course Introduction

The MSc International Migration and Public Policy programme provides a systematic multidisciplinary approach to central controversies in the comparative analysis of public policy responses to immigration and migrant integration issues across different levels of governance.

The programme offers a unique range of courses that will deepen your knowledge of migration and mobility issues and help you gain new insight into public policy responses to international migration at the global, regional, national and local levels. You will also focus on the growing role of the EU in European and international migration management.

As well as benefitting from expertise from the Departments of Government, Sociology and the European Institute, you will have the opportunity to attend and participate in the established public lecture and seminar series organised by the LSE Migration Studies Unit. You will also have the advantage of studying at an international campus in close proximity to national policy-makers, offices of international organisations and EU institutions.

Teaching methods

LSE is internationally recognised for its teaching and research and therefore employs a rich variety of teaching staff with a range of experience and status. Courses may be taught by individual members of faculty, such as lecturers, senior lecturers, readers, associate professors and professors. Many departments now also employ guest teachers and visiting members of staff, LSE teaching fellows and graduate teaching assistants who are usually doctoral research students and in the majority of cases, teach on undergraduate courses only.

Assessment

All taught courses are required to include formative coursework which is unassessed. It is designed to help prepare you for summative assessment which counts towards the course mark and to the degree award. LSE uses a range of formative assessment, such as essays, problem sets, case studies, reports, quizzes, mock exams and many others. Summative assessment may be conducted during the course or by final examination at the end of the course.

Careers

This programme provides an outstanding preparation for further research work or for a career in international institutions, the public services, NGOs or with one of the growing number of organisations in the private sector that are concerned with immigration issues.
