Globalisation affects people all around the world in different ways and extents. This specialisation allows you to take an independent position in debates on globalisation, migration and development.
In Globalisation, Migration and Development you will study aspects of globalisation as related to socio-economic and spatial developments in different parts of the world, and the so-called Global South in particular. This implies a focus on: emerging social and spatial inequalities, resultant processes of social exclusion, but also emancipation; the nature and impact of migration; the role of resource demands for governance, etc. As these topics can be studied in different contexts we focus on urban and rural contexts, and the relation between these two domains. Beyond the thematic courses you will also follow courses giving insight in major theoretical debates in human geography, and courses which equip you with methodological and analytical skills. Thereby you will also be able to set up and conduct an own master thesis in which you research a topic that has your interest.

This specialisation helps to prepare you for a career as a policymaker, practitioner, researcher and/or lecturer, whether in The Netherlands, the EU, or elsewhere in the world.

The Master's in Globalisation, Migration and Development is a specialisation of the Master's programme in Human Geography.
