Mexico’s border is an advantage to SDSU, due to its closeness that allows us to develop the class, and teach the student the other face of the border culture, and a door to Latin America. With this course the student would see Tijuana’s other faces rather than the tourist view. This class offers you the opportunity to know the richest part of Mexican culture, stay in touch with social institutions, daily life customs, city’s important people in order to have a social, cultural and economic perspective. Tijuana, it is the four most important city of Mexico, and in the latest years it is transformed in a cosmopolitan city, with a cultural diversity due to migration massive arrival from all geographical points of the whole country. Besides, it is one of the most important cities border with the United States, which does make Tijuana a tourist city.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
