Emigration and Immigration: A Northern European Perspective

Dette er studietilbudet for studieår 2019-2020. Endringer kan komme.

Students will spend their second semester in Stavanger/Norway. They move to one of the small European nation states, geographically on the periphery, but with a very dynamic economy: Stavanger being the economic hub of the Norwegian oil/gas production and with a current need for migrant labour. This module introduces them to the migration studies research based at UiS and - with the smaller course - it assists them to 'locate' themselves in the Norwegian university and society.


Students will have acquired
  • an overview of migration processes in the past (a) and present (b), their structures and consequences, including the ability to critically evaluate categories and approaches of migration research and to apply them in a reflecting manner (LO 1 a, b),
  • other module specific knowledge and competencies (LO 5),

- knowledge on inter- and trans- Scandinavian ethnic relations,
- basic understanding of Norwegian culture and society
  • experience in handling new media and communication technology (LO 9).


1. Scandinavia: Historical and Contemporary Migration (12 ECTS)
Initially, the course will focus on mass migration from Scandinavia to North America and provide an overview of migration history in the 19th and early 20th century, including introduction to ongoing research and key databases. Acculturation and integration in North America, relations to dominant American and Canadian culture as well as to other ethnic/immigrant groups will be investigated. The second part of the course will address the contemporary immigration to Scandinavia and Norway from perspectives of sociology, political science and education.
