The Joint European Master's in International Migration and Social Cohesion (MISOCO) is a two-year international Master's with the support of the Erasmus Mundus programme of the European Union which offers students the unique opportunity to study international migration in three European countries.
The programme seeks to explore the critical elements of international migration and the incorporation of immigrants in the society of destination. Its aim is to educate students in advanced theories, techniques, and methodologies in the field of Migration Studies, so they will be able to translate perceived societal problems into relevant social scientific research questions and contribute to the solution of such problems by combining insights from fundamental social theory joined with substantive theories.
This Master is unique to Europe. It provides an opportunity by bringing together those who have an interest in creating a shared outlook for Europe in terms of migration studies. All partner universities not only teach but actively research various migration-related issues, thus being able to offer students state-of-the art knowledge in respective specialization areas.
