COMM-220

Intro to Intercultural Communication

Credit(s): 3

This course is concerned with cultural differences and their effects on communication. The course attempts to help students become more sensitive to the needs of people from other cultures with whom we interact. With more and more diversity in our country, and to create and maintain positive relationships with minimal hostility and friction, an understanding of how to communicate across cultures will prove to be a considerable asset. Communication competence with people of other cultures calls for a repertoire of communication skills rarely taught in any other college course. Lecture: 3 hours per week
Prerequisites: Take COMM-101; Minimum grade C-.
