Overview

Graduate Diploma in Migration and Citizenship

UFV's multi-disciplinary Migration and Citizenship graduate certificate program uses real case studies to investigate human movement, resettlement, and belonging, both globally and with a particular focus on the Canadian experience.

As a Migration and Citizenship student, you will:

  • Examine human migration, whether voluntary, forced, permanent, or temporary, in transnational and intrastate contexts
  • Investigate how different governments and state institutions shape this mobility
  • Learn about the experiences and identities of the migrants and the diverse forms of communities they create

You will also:

  • Explore the various meanings of citizenship in contexts of migration
  • Analyze how they are shaped by legal, political, institutional, economic, social, and cultural dynamics of inclusion and exclusion and how they are created by migrant experiences, identities, and communities through policies, practices, and discourses

The Migration and Citizenship graduate certificate is designed for employed professionals wanting to grow their skills or recent graduates wishing to enter the field of immigration and resettlement.

The program is scheduled to accommodate both working and full-time students, with classes offered in evening and weekend time slots

If you choose to study full time, you can complete this graduate certificate in eight months. But you can also opt to study part-time and take up to three years to earn your credential.

Graduates who wish to pursue their studies can ladder into the UFV Migration and Citizenship graduate diploma or transfer into related master’s programs.
