In June 2015, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reported its highest level of displacement in recorded history: 59.5 million. Conflicts in Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia largely contribute to this staggering number, which is up 8.3 million from 2014. At DePaul, a new master’s degree in refugee and forced migration studies seeks to provide students with a hands-on, interdisciplinary approach to offering sustainable support to refugees.
