Instructor positions - Migration Studies

To contribute to its new program in immigration studies, the Concordia School of Community and Public Affairs is looking to hire instructors to teach the following courses:


SCPA 315 Immigration in Quebec and Canada (3 credits)

This course focuses on immigration and diversity policies as well as the social consequences of immigration and multiculturalism in Canadian and Quebec contexts. Students learn about the evolution of policy in these areas as well as covering topics such as public opinion and reactions toward immigration, advantages and challenges of multiculturalism versus integration, and the theoretical debates surrounding immigration and models of integration (assimilation, civic integration, multiculturalism).

SCPA 481 Settlement and Integration (3 credits) 

This course examines the experiences of immigrants and refugees in Canada, focusing on the social, cultural and political processes of their integration and/or marginalization. In this context, it explores immigrant-based agencies and social movements, and equitable approaches to settlement services and community development to help newcomers adapt to their new environment. It also looks at integration outcomes of immigrants: employment, education, housing, participation.
