This course will examine the political, economic, and social factors that affect immigration policy in the United States and abroad. This will include analysis and discussion of the implications of different types of immigration history and policies in countries sending and receiving immigrants. We will also examine different ways of resettling refugees and handling the problems of diversifying states and communities. The course will include a service component. Students will work with Iowa’s refugees through the Iowa International Center and their projects on immigration and refugees. Students are required to volunteer at least 4 hours per month.
