Trent launches Global Migration & Refugee Studies specialization

August 16, 2021
Trent University’s International Development Studies program has announced the launch of a new Global Migration & Refugee Studies specialization. The specialization will prepare students to understand issues such as displacement and forced migration, cross-border movement, migrant experiences, settlement, and citizenship. Students will participate in community-based research, projects, and international field courses to gain hands-on experience. “Migration studies is of critical and increasing importance across the globe,” said Dr Chris Beyers, chair of Trent’s International Development Studies Department. “Trent is well-positioned to offer rigorous programming on the topics of immigration and forced migration, with several faculty members conducting cutting-edge research in this field.” Trent (ON)
