SOC 324LEC Sociology of Immigration


The United States is an immigrant nation; understanding migration experiences is central to understanding ourselves. This course provides a sociological framework for exploring historical and contemporary immigration, primarily (but not exclusively) to the United States. We use theories of international migration to understand how and why people move from one country or region to another; to explore the immigrant experience in terms of social, economic, and spatial adaptation; and to consider racial and ethnic experiences of migration past, present, and future.
