Understand and help address the needs of Canadian newcomers
Given Canada's international reputation as a desirable destination for immigrants and refugees, settlement professionals able to support newcomers are in high demand. UFV’s Migration and Citizenship graduate program, the only one of its kind in Western Canada, is offered from the heart of the Fraser Valley, where Statistics Canada reports immigrant population percentages as high as 40%.
Especially designed for employed professionals wanting to grow their skills and recent graduates who wish to enter this area of practice, UFV’s Migration and Citizenship graduate program uses multi-, inter-, and trans-disciplinary approaches that draw from a range of fields - including Anthropology and Sociology, Geography, History, Political Science, English, Modern Languages, and Global Development Studies — to investigate human movement, resettlement, and belonging in their contemporary global and historical contexts, with a particular focus on the Canadian experience.
A flexible credential structure, seamlessly laddering from certificate to diploma, allows you to pursue the level best suited to your career or education goals. After completion of your Migration and Citizenship graduate diploma, you can pursue your studies by transferring into related master’s programs such as Royal Roads University’s Master of Interdisciplinary Studies.
