Students from a variety of majors and concentrations (from social sciences to engineering, and everything between) are welcome to apply.
This program focuses its efforts on understanding and improving the lives of families living along the U.S.-Mexico border. We manage a number of community outreach activities in Hidalgo County, TX in addition to our research projects. Our program has its own transcription and translation hub because all of our data is collected in Spanish and translated for analysis. In the past we have used a variety of methods to analyze our data, using programs like ArcGIS, STATA, and qualitative analysis software.
