Minor, Certificate (Cert)
Why study Immigration Studies?
Our planet is experiencing global transformation – with migration among the most significant contributors. From the Syrian refugee crisis to United States president Donald Trump’s stance on immigration, debate around identity and cultural differences is growing, and it has the power to shape public policy and practice. Understanding what’s at play is the key to building more welcoming and inclusive societies.
Explore the politics, sociology, geography and anthropology of migration and, through community engagement, delve into the practical expression of those dynamics in Quebec and Canada.
The certificate program is a natural choice for people already working in the field, who wish reinforce their expertise with academic training. The minor is an ideal complement to students pursuing undergraduate studies in social sciences and the humanities.
A Bachelor of Arts degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
