Graduate Courses

List of approved and proposed graduate courses for 2017/2018

The Centre for Refugee Studies does not offer any courses of its own on refugee related issues. However, we recognize a wide range of courses offered by the various faculties at York which relate to refugee and migration studies. While we cannot guarantee that courses deemed appropriate for the Diploma will be mounted in any given year, we do try to annually update the courses listed below.

It is important to note that students in the CRS diploma do not receive any special priority in enrollment for these courses. Please note that students registered for the Graduate Diploma are not exempt from having to fulfill course prerequisites and/or requirements in their home faculties. The following is a list of approved and proposed courses, arranged by the Program that is being offered in 2016-17 academic year.
