Pre-Diaspora Studies Academy

Serving Immigrants & Refugees

Why Pre-Diaspora Studies?

Pre-Diaspora Studies introduces the student to migration studies, immigration law, and specialized services to prepare graduates to meet needs of immigrants, refugees and internationals.

Transnational migration is becoming a day to day phenomenon across cultures. According to data from Migration Policy Institute (2016), the net migration to the United States between 2010 and 2015 was about 5 million. Recent events in Western Asia and Europe illustrate the plight of millions of displaced people.

Pre-Diaspora studies aquaints students with both natural and man-made causes of population migration at various levels. It also illustrates processes as well as challenges people face as they try to adjust to the new destinations.
