SO 308 - The Immigrant Experience
(3 cr.) For much of its history, people have come to the U.S. from other countries seeking religious freedom, political asylum or better economic opportunities. Some Americans want to restrict migration, worrying that immigrants might create economic and cultural problems for the U.S. In this course, students explore questions such as: Why do people migrate? How has immigration shaped the U.S. throughout its history? How does immigration impact the American economy and culture? How has immigration policy changed over time? Using a sociological perspective, students learn what shapes the decisions and experiences of immigrants and about the impact of immigration on society. Prerequisite: two courses from SO; Every Year, Fall
