A series of podcasts related to the MSc in Migration Studies. This interdisciplinary, 9-month Masters degree at Oxford University is jointly offered by the School of Anthropology and the Oxford Department of International Development. The course draws on the intellectual resources of its two parent departments and the three world-leading migration research centres at Oxford (COMPAS, IMI and RSC). The programme allows students to explore human mobility in a historical and global perspective, and to address the complex relations between global political economy, migratory experiences, and government and social responses.

In this introduction to the MSc in Migration Studies course, COMPAS lecturers discuss the tensions that run through migration research and teaching, in particular between policy and academic perspectives.
