Student Research Weeks: Questioning the Familiar in Flight & Migration

This 4-week, 4-credit intensive program at the Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt offers a critical empirical introduction to questions about flight and migration from a social science perspective. 

The program starts with a theoretical introduction to social science theory and a hands-on introduction to qualitative research methods. In both courses ISEP students work side by side with German students. ISEP students develop their own research questions and get the opportunity to conduct the small-scale research project. The center for Flight and Migration organizes excursions and meetings with several regional key stakeholders. Students will take part in workshops and an intercultural open-air festival where they mingle and work together with international students, migrants and refugees. 


Housing is included in the cost of the program. Meals are not provided, however breakfast is available at the hostel. Students also have the option of lunch at the KU cafeteria from Monday through Friday for 2-4 EUR. There are also several restaurants in town which offer student discounts for lunch.
