COMĀ 366. Intercultural Communication. 3 Credit Hours.

Intercultural communication is the systematic study of communicative interaction between individuals and groups whose cultural understandings, presuppositions and value orientations are distinct enough to exhibit clear effects on the course and consequences of communicative events. Students will be introduced to key concepts and issues in intercultural communication; and through the analysis of case studies of intercultural encounters within different settings in the U.S. and abroad, students will learn to understand the ways in which subtle connections between "culture" and "communication" are implicated in a broad range of interpersonal difficulties from "culture shock" to open conflict.
