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.
