Learning Community #10:
THE GEOLOGY OF MEXICO AND ETHNIC RELATIONS
Pre-requisites: You must be an admitted College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) Student for Fall 2014.
This learning community combines Geology and Ethnic Studies to create an understanding of how both the physical world and the sociological world affect our lives. The Geology of Mexico course explores the structure of the Earth and the physical processes that created the Mexican landscape, that produced Mexico's metal and oil wealth and that cause natural hazards such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. The Introduction to Ethnic Studies course explores cultural experiences in the U.S. by providing an overview of the diverse and multiple experiences of the people of the world. This community will also examine the impact of such ethnic relations on society as a whole.
