The Autonomous University of Social Movements and the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (UAM), one of Mexico’s most prestigious public universities, offer this summer study abroad program. The program utilizes a modular system developed at the UAM – a student-centered pedagogy that emphasizes discussion, student presentations, group reflection, workshops with social actors on front-line struggles, and integration of theory with hands-on experience. Professors are organizers/academics with years of firsthand experience in popular struggles in Mexico and the United States. Course work includes relevant readings, discussion-based classes, workshops, field trips, and site visits.
