I find it well done, and very well presented by a professor that speak very clearly. The reference documents and web site refered, were very interesting also. Unfortunately, I did take the course after the 2nd week, and was not able to do the peer assignement, but I succeed to get a completion certificate as this assignement was only 20%. I did like a lot the doucumentary refered in the course.

If you ever wondered about the intricate details of US immigration policy, or in case you want to learn a little more History using immigration as a proxy subject, then this is a nice short course that will certainly teach you something new. In just five weeks, it gives you an overview on current migratory fluxes into the US, the evolution of policies and laws, current requirements and even likely future changes. To do this, you will discuss the US Constitutional law, racism and even the political structure of the country. As the professor repeats over and over, this course will not give you enough information in case you're trying to get into the US. But it certainly goes a long way for an introductory course. There are quizzes, an exam and a (very simple) written assignment, The lectures are really good, at just the correct pace. The only drawback is an unavoidable one, which is the scope of the course itself. If you don't really care about something as specific as US immigration, you should absolutely not take this course. But I guess you could say this about the scope of any other course. So overall it was a great experience.
