Welcome prospective MMFRP 2013-14 students!
We’re thrilled to see your interest in exploring the field of migration to and from Mexico. Currently, we’re working with collaborators on both sides of the border to strengthen our bi-nationality and community ties. We welcome your questions and can put you in touch with current MMFRP students to give you a better picture of the nature of MMFRP.
What will I do in MMFRP?
MMFRP stands for The Mexican Migration Field Research Program. During Fall Quarter/Semester 2013 you will be trained in field research methods and in how to conduct fieldwork in other cultural settings. In Winter Quarter/Semester 2014 you will study a high-migration area of Oaxaca, México, and migrant communities in San Diego County. You will also have the opportunity to work with local migrants in conjunction with community-based organizations in San Diego County. The class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30-10:50am.
Why should I apply for MMFRP?
For undergraduates, this program’s unique research and scientific writing opportunities provide excellent preparation for graduate school as well as a career in teaching, public health, non-governmental organizations, and law. For graduate students, the program can be used to satisfy an international field experience requirement, collect data for a thesis project or pilot study, and expand your publication record.
