Leben Nelson Moro -------------- THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY IN CAIRO Graduate Diploma in Forced Migration and Refugee Studies The American University in Cairo (AUC) is offering a one-year post-graduate Diploma in Forced Migration and Refugee Studies. This multidisciplinary program begins in September 2000 and will offer specialized courses and opportunities to study refugee issues from such wide-ranging perspectives as anthropology, international law, political science, psychology, and sociology. The program is designed to meet the needs of those individuals who are currently working with refugees, those who seek to enter this field, or whose research interests will center on issues of forced migration in both Africa and the Middle East. Curriculum: The diploma requires 6 courses for a total of 18 credit hours. The program is intended to be completed in one year. To insure a broader comparative understanding of forced migration, students must also demonstrate, either through course enrollment or research, that they have examined issues in the Middle East and in Africa. Students will be assisted and are encouraged to pursue internships. Required Courses: During the Fall Semester (September to January) all students in the Diploma program are required to take "Approaches to Forced Migration and the Refugee Condition". During the Spring Semester (February to June) a further course, "Issues in Forced Migration", will require the participation of all students pursuing the Diploma. These courses will be taught by Barbara Harrell-Bond, Distinguished Adjunct Professor, founder and former director of the Refugee Studies Program at Oxford University. Electives in Forced Migration and Refugee Studies Students must complete 4 additional courses from the list of elective courses determined on a yearly basis. Each elective course will have a component relating to forced migration. Students will be expected to complete a research project that focuses upon forced migration and refugee studies in each elective course.
