Graduate Diploma Program

This Program, coordinated by the Centre for Refugee Studies at York University, allows a student enrolled in a graduate program at the University to formally specialize in refugee and migration studies, and to be awarded a Graduate Diploma in Refugee and Migration Studies by the Faculty of Graduate Studies upon successful completion of all degree requirements.

CRS Summer Course on Refugees and Forced Migration

The summer course is a professional development course that provides an interdisciplinary, interactive and experiential approach to the study of forced migration and refugee issues.

CRS Online Introduction to Refugee Studies

The Centre for Refugee Studies has produced a video series offering an introduction to refugee studies.

The videos will be of interest to people looking to learn about refugee issues, including people wanting to learn about how these issues play out in the Canadian context. They may also be of use to teachers and instructors looking for online materials introducing students to these issues – especially during the COVID-19 disruption.
