Transnational Education, Ethnic Studies 3790

The first semester and year after transferring to a new school is often the most difficult for transfer students. Transfer students usually have their lowest GPA at their new school in their first semester. We want to prevent this so we have a great class called ETHNC 3790 Transnational Education that is for new transfer students to help acclimate them to the University of Utah. Part of the course is an interesting focus on transnationalism and the other half of the class is connecting you to resources and opportunities on campus to help ensure you are as successful as possible. The professor of the class is excellent and is a big advocate for transfer students!

Class Description

Ethnic Studies 3790 is a class focused on improving student’s understanding of educational systems, and the cross-border impact on current educational access in the US. Specifically, students will focus on the educational, social and economic impact of historical trends of migration globally and in the US. The role of identity in contemporary migration patterns will be central to the discussion of transnationalism, including the ways gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and the intersection of identity inform the experience of migration. According to the US Census, the Utah foreign-born population and the population of color have both doubled in the last ten years and these rates are at their highest in history. The majority of foreign-born people in Utah are from Latin-American countries, Asia and Europe (Perlich, 2010). As a result, understanding the transnational experiences and what educational trends occur nationally are critical to making sense of Utah educational-pipelines.
