Spring Quarter 2019 Course Previews

If you’re still struggling to finish your Spring Quarter schedule, here are a couple courses you might want to consider.

AES442 – Undocumented Immigrant Communities

Mon-Wed, 1:30pm-3:20pm. The politics of migration, citizenship and race are the focal point for this course. In these times, the migrant crisis and others compel us to understand their productive forces and that they are crises of identity and power. This class examines sociologically the concepts of undocumented, citizen, and the structuring of il/legality as they are situated in axes of power, specifically in racialized and gendered contexts. Working with primary and secondary sources, we will learn about experiences across diverse communities, i.e., UndocuLatino, UndocuBlack, UndocuAsian and Pacific Islander, and UndocuQueer. Institutional outcomes in migration, law, labor, carceral spaces, education, and health are areas in social life that may be examined in course materials.

GENST391F – Job Search Strategies for Seniors

Wed, 2:30pm-4:20pm. This is a 2-credit/graded course, focused on self-exploration, investigation of career options, and the development of an effective job search strategy. Students will work on resumes, cover letters, networking, interviewing, and will be required to attend programming related to their professional development. If you have any questions or want to learn more, please reach out to Alison McCarthy at alisonm3@uw.edu.
