This seminar will focus on journalism and the migration crisis as the U.S. reconsiders immigration policy and refugee resettlement. At the same time, America's closest ally pursues a very different policy; Canada has the highest immigration rates per capita in the world, three times higher than the U.S. This course will report on immigration and refugee policy and practice across borders, with a focus on the conflict between national security, international responsibility, and America and Canada's historical roles in resettlement. Trips to Canada (Toronto and Winnipeg) and Connecticut will give students opportunities to report from the field.
The application for rising seniors, juniors, and sophomores to enroll in this course, which is limited to 12 students, is now closed.
Students may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to be put on a wait list. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
