About our journalism
Borderzine is an independent, bilingual, online news magazine covering life on the U.S., Mexico border that is powered by UT El Paso multimedia journalism students who live on either side of the border. Based at the University of Texas at El Paso News Media Lab, the award-winning program gives students hands-on experience with news-gathering and production skills that are in high-demand in the communications industry.
