The courses and seminars for the certificate program in refugee studies provide students with a working knowledge of migration and displacement issues. The combination of several disciplines and methodologies enables students to examine the refugee issue from a variety of perspectives and to study policies, concepts and responses to economic and political migration issues.

Practical experience is an essential part of the certificate program. During one eight-week term, the enrolled students work in a refugee situation in cooperation with one of the several concerned agencies. In addition, students gain practical experience through internships, work or research with both governmental and nongovernmental organizations working with refugees and/or migrants.
