Global Migration Studies

  1. The goals for the program are to provide students
    • with the critical thinking skills to understand factors that propel migration and affect migrants’ experiences
    • with an understanding of the role of history, culture, and gender on different migrant groups.  Students who graduate with a minor in Global Migration Studies will better serve a multicultural population and have a clear understanding of how different disciplines approach migration.
  2. Learning objectives for the Minor in Global Migration Studies include that students:
    • demonstrate a theoretical perspective for approaching migration studies
    • provide a survey of migration experiences through cross-cultural description; through an introduction to a disciplinary method; through an analysis of the contexts migrants live in; and/or through investigation of factors that impact migrant populations.
    • analyze how history, gender, and culture relate to migrant experiences
    • critically evaluate descriptions of migrant experiences from different sources, including the media and popular culture.
    • understand and work effectively with a diversity of individuals and communities
    • apply theory and research to contemporary concerns for migrant groups
