Description
The world seems to be in constant flux: ideological dissimilarities, ethnic strife and intercultural conflicts. One poses the question: are there any common grounds peoples from different traditions, cultures and society can seek? The answer is yes. It will require us to develop cross-cultural communication competence - respect differences, listen compassionately, be empathetic, cooperate and have an open mind. This class attempts to help students establish these skills. Examining an array of cross-cultural issues, it helps students establish cross cultural competence, an instrument that resolves conflicts and achieves understanding. Students will have an opportunity, in addition to attending lectures and reading books and articles, listen to guest lectures, write and present book reports, watch multimedia materials and design diversity posters.This class fulfills DAS General Education Cross-Cultural Awareness requirement. It is a 1000-level upper level communication course counting toward a major in communication. It is cross-listed with Global Studies program, earning credits toward a certificate in global studies or global health.
