The immigration debate along the southwestern border of the United States is multifaceted because of the unique geography, history and cultural interactions of the region. In this course, students will learn about immigration from multiple perspectives and interact with numerous stakeholders along the Arizona/Sonora border. Activities will include meetings with government officials from both countries, interaction with humanitarian groups, exposure to the unique geographical features of the Sonora Desert, presentations by scholars, experiences with artists, contact with migrants and group reflection. By the end of the course, students will engage effectively in public discourse about the complicated issue of immigration from a much broader perspective than that of the average U.S. citizen.
