Course Details 
Host Campus: UT El Paso
Course Program: Finish@UT
Program Cross-Listings: Multidisciplinary Studies (BMS)
Course Code: SOCI 4308
Course Title: U.S.-Mexico Border Society and Culture (Finish@UT)
Course Full Description: At the U.S.-Mexico border, diverse cultures meet, mix, and create. The future of two nations can be seen in major social changes taking place at the border. This course has four goals: it provides objective factual knowledge about the social and cultural composition of the U.S.-Mexico border region as a background to major public issues such as immigration, global industrialization, cultural diversity, transnationalism, poverty, and progress. It examines the human side of those issues, paying close attention to the lives of individual people in the borderlands. It places those individual lives in broader social and cultural frameworks that connect Mexico and United States. And it allows students to clarify their values by exploring the many sides of these human issues. The course is an excellent introduction to this increasingly important region, and a good way for people with experience at the border to strengthen their tools for understanding and practice.
Prerequisites: This course is reserved for students enrolled in the Finish@UT or UTEP BMS programs. Junior standing or higher required.
