Refugee and forced migration study is a complex field. It requires interdisciplinary perspectives and approaches. These range from international relations to history and from law to program evaluation. This program offers students the essential competencies and frameworks to deal with refugee and forced displacement issues at the local, national and international levels. DePaul University is uniquely positioned to provide curricular rigor thanks to an outstanding faculty.

Our program is exceptional in that our students take courses across a number of colleges, giving them a broad based education and skills that are relevant and easily transferable. Moreover, Chicago offers excellent opportunities for practical exposure because it is home to one of the largest cohort of organizations working in relevant areas.
