IMER Advanced Studies, 30 credits
The purpose of the course is to offer an extensive and thorough orientation in the field of international migration and ethnic relations (IMER). This includes on the one hand different aspects of international migration such as causes, patterns, structures and conditions on the global, regional, national and local levels in sending and receiving societies, and on the other hand the relational dynamics of ethnic diversity such as integration, segregation, multiculturalism, populism and xenophobia. It includes both macro-/systemic perspectives on governance, power and resources as well as micro-perspectives on groups and individuals. The students will acquire both factual knowledge about these phenomena, and theoretical knowledge about different ways of understanding and explaining them.
Theory of Science and Research Methodology, 15 credits
During the course, we will discuss the theory of science and research methods relevant to the multidisciplinary field of advanced IMER studies.
IMER Master (one-year) Thesis, 15 credits
