Students will gain both academic and practical skills. In their first year, students will acquire conceptual methodologies and legal frameworks for critical analyses of refugee protection regimes and human rights law. They will also be introduced to health issues in refugee and forced migration studies. In the second year, the two research methods courses, together with the core practicum and internships, will enable students to assess, evaluate and apply theoretical knowledge as practitioners.
