The Intercultural Communication course (COMM 216) aims to help students develop a broad understanding of the nature of relations between different cultural groups and enhance their cultural sensitivity. It also focuses on improving communication skills needed for use in international settings.
Structure of the Course
The class modules are taught through a combination of lectures, activity days (small group interactions) and experiential service learning experiences outside of class.
