“Transnational Migrations”

MITRA is a bilingual and interdisciplinary Master’s programme in the social sciences and humanities, taught in both French and English. It addresses international migration and how it impacts contemporary societies.

MITRA offers in-depth training to students aiming to specialise in migration studies and go on to doctoral degrees, public policy analysts working on migration and integration (including experts from international and local organisations), and intercultural mediators running community projects.

As a member of one of the University of Lille's International Graduate Programmes, MITRA prepares students for both further research and a professional career. This taught programme allows them to work on both European and non-European case studies, combining theoretical analysis with field surveys.

Depending on the students’ major, the consortium jointly awards two or three Master’s degrees on completion.

Entry requirements

Applicants are expected to hold a degree in the social sciences, law, foreign languages, and humanities (180 ECTS). Exceptions can be made for students from other disciplines who already have some professional experience. MITRA is taught in both French and English, requiring B2 proficiency (CEFR). The duration of the programme is twenty-four months. Depending on the students’ major, the consortium jointly awards two or three Master’s degrees on completion.
