MINOR PROGRAM IN CRITICAL MIGRATION STUDIES (ARTS)

Program Advisor: Janet Roopnarinesingh janetr@utsc.utoronto.ca

The Minor program in Critical Migration Studies offers students an understanding of the causes and consequences of international migration in sending, transit and receiving societies. Issues of race and ethnicity are highlighted along with the role of class, gender, sexuality, and citizenship in understanding how societies decide to include, exclude, and regulate different groups of migrants. The Minor is interdisciplinary in content and method; through data-driven coursework and experiential learning, students will develop a suite of transferable skills in research design, quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and written, oral, and digital communication.
