Undergraduate Courses

List of approved and proposed undergraduate 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 Certificate will be mounted in any given year, we do try to annually update the courses listed below.

Each undergraduate program publishes an annual handbook/lecture timetable, and students are advised to consult these before making their final choice of courses. It is important to note that students in the CRS certificate program do not receive any special priority in enrollment for these courses. Please note that students registered for the certificate program are not exempt from having to fulfill course prerequisites and/or requirements in their home faculties. The following is a list of approved courses, arranged by the Program.
