Section Information for Spring 2021

The world that we live in is getting smaller...

It is nearly impossible that students would finish their degrees without meeting and interacting with people from countries and cultures other than their own.  This course aims to make you think about your own role in the intercultural events you engage in each time you walk into a college classroom.

As you read and discuss you will think about your own experiences with language and cultural differences in the classroom and in the broader world. How did they manifest themselves? How did you react?

Topics include:

Analysis of communication variables as they relate to intercultural encounters; emphasize the influence of culture on the communication process; particularly the influence of verbal and nonverbal communication and how messages are interpreted.
