    This course is designed to provide a sociological understanding concerning various impacts of immigration in the United States. We will examine fundamental concepts for studying migration, and theories that explain international migration. We will also discuss how immigrants have redefined –and will keep redefining– local and foreign demographic dynamics in receiving and sending societies, transnational networks, and a more complex ethno-racial diversity with meaningful international roots.
