Immigrant America

University of Southern California

Teaching Assistant

(Course Instructor: Dr. Jody Agius Vallejo) This course explores the dynamics of modern immigration in the United States, emphasizing the socio-economic integration of immigrants from Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean since the 1960s. It covers topics such as immigration policy, undocumented migration, racialization, and the impact of race, ethnicity, and class on immigrants' experiences. Students will examine how these factors influence American social structures and contribute to diversity. Critical thinking and analytical writing skills are essential, as students link theoretical concepts with empirical research and real-world outcomes.
