Global Models in Intercultural Relations

As technological, social, political and economic developments continue to increase the prevalence of international communications, this course helps students gain a clearer understanding of the worldwide diversity of cultural communication systems compared with their own more familiar cultural habits. In addition to discovering various global patterns that emerge from language and worldview comparisons, students learn how to develop the necessary emotional capacity and intercultural sensitivity needed for brokering complex social relationships between people from diverse backgrounds.
