COMM 115 - Introduction to Intercultural Communication
This course examines the exchange of information between people who are culturally unalike. The essence of intercultural communication is the way in which different cultural values, beliefs, rituals, behaviors, artifacts, experiences, and worldviews – the sets of variables which form the differences between cultures – affect the ways in which people process information. This class discusses how people from different cultures come to see things differently, and how those perceptual differences effect their communication. Class experiences will include lectures, group discussions, activities, and intercultural simulations. While course material is theoretical, course assignments and discussions are designed for application to your everyday encounters with individuals from other countries, therefore, student participation is essential to learning the course materials.
