|Event Start Date||Monday, January 9, 2012 – Saturday, January 14, 2012|
PJS 594 or PJS 494 – The US-Mexico Border Immersion course offers one unit of credit in Peace and Justice Studies at the graduate (PJS 594) or upper division undergraduate (PJS 494) levels. It is coordinated jointly with the Franciscan School of Theology (FST) in Berkeley, CA, and is held over the course of one week during the January intersession. The interdisciplinary nature of the course addresses political, economic, social, and theological perspectives on the border and bilateral relationship between the United States and Mexico, providing students with a diverse educational experience. The course combines seminar lectures and various site visits to relevant destinations on the US-Mexico border in the San Diego/Tijuana binational region.
Site visits typically include the border fence, a maquiladora, the Casa del Migrante, the Centro Cultural de Tijuana, and the US Border Patrol, among others.
