The Border Studies programs are designed for students who want to acquire knowledge and skills regarding the dynamics that occur in regions where multiple communities come into overlapping contact and where borders of all sorts both divide and create communities. Border Studies is particularly suited for students who want to become service professionals working within border regions in careers such as city planning, public policy, the health professions, border patrol, education, and public administration. The Border Studies curricula provide an interdisciplinary exploration of the geopolitical, linguistic, cultural, and social frontiers that shape the development of border communities.
The Border Studies programs are offered by the Liberal Studies Department...
