ML 342 - From Plymouth Rock to Ellis Island: An Examination of Immigration to America

(3.00 cr.)

The United States has long been known as a nation of immigrants. Most current residents originally came from someplace else, or at least their forebears did. This course examines immigration primarily as a cultural phenomenon, focusing on the process and its impact on the individual immigrant. Students investigate the political, social, and economic conditions which may have motivated someone to leave his or her native country, as well as the adjustments a person had to make upon arrival in North America. Students also have an opportunity to consider the subject from the vantage point of their own family background.

Sessions Typically Offered: Fall/Spring
Years Typically Offered: Varies
