Description

This course offers an overview of the main issues related to international migration, focusing on the United States. First, we will identify the phenomenon to understand why and how people leave their homeland for a new country. Second, we will study international migration as a movement across the territorial boundaries of nation-states. We will learn about the political dimensions of migration across borders, including citizenship and rights. Lastly, we will survey the impact of these movements on health conditions and outcomes. In this last section, we will consider the use of health policies to limit the admission of people as refugees and the impact of these policies on the health of immigrants.

 Note that students should only take ONE prerequisite course (SOC 100, 102, 300, or 302); no credit will be granted for the second prerequisite course taken (the second course will have a “Not For Credit” designation on the transcript).
