University of San Francisco Creates Master Program in Migration Studies

The University of San Francisco (USF) has created the Master in Migration Studies program in response to the challenges of migration, a critical issue affecting many people across the globe.  The academic program exists in collaboration with Universidad Iberoamericana, the Jesuit university of Mexico City. Together they have created a program that seeks to “train professionals and researchers on the many perspectives involved in understanding migration and supporting the personal, social, legal and spiritual needs of migrants and refugees.”

With a focus on migration from Mexico and Central America, the program will offer students the opportunity to work with “top researchers, professors, project practitioners and policy  makers in both San Francisco and Mexico City” to build their skills in policy development, service to migrant communities, non-governmental organization work, and more.
