Career opportunities

In the age of global migration processes and inter-ethnic conflicts fuelled by an increasing level of nationalism, Ethnic and Minority Policy experts are more than simply needed in various fields of studies and works. Both governmental and non-governmental offices and organizations dealing with ethnic or other kind of minorities, migrants, and refugees provide our students possible future career possibilities. Besides these institutes, local offices of different international organizations also employ experts on ethnic and minority issues. We expect that our graduates can find jobs in the different public or private agencies like in public (governmental) organizations and the minority self-governments, in public education, in research institutes, in the media, in civil organizations and NGOs, and in all such programs and projects that aim to promote the successful social and cultural integration of minorities into the dominant society.
