About

Are you interested in immigration, migration and border issues in the U.S. or beyond? Do you want to work with border communities? This unique Transborder Studies MAS program from Arizona State University prepares you with an understanding of transborder, transnational and border issues locally, nationally and internationally.

Overview

The Transborder Studies MAS program from Arizona State University is designed for students interested in border issues and communities. Students learn from interdisciplinary scholars, both in the social sciences and humanities, in order to develop their individualized plan of study and focus area.

The program has historically been grounded in and inspired by the geographical specificity of the U.S.-Mexico border. Given the massive scale of globalization in the 21st century and its influence on local, regional, national, subnational and international environments, the program examines transborder regions and populations around the world, including metaphorical, linguistic and cultural borders, as well as patterns and implications of immigration and migration.

Career Opportunities

Students have the opportunity to engage in innovative research or applied experiences. Depending on the plan of study, students may focus on a trajectory in academia with interests to pursue research opportunities or a doctoral degree. Students who wish to pursue career options outside of academia may focus the plan of study on a more professional and applied track with potential interest in local, state, national, non-governmental organizations or international agencies.
