  • Overview

    This unit is designed to introduce students to issues of cross-cultural communication and to relate those issues to the language studies that students undertake as a part of their degree. Particular emphasis is given to the interrelationship of language and culture, and how this connection plays out in international settings. The unit develops analytical as well as practical skills for communication in multicultural settings, such as multinational businesses or the diplomatic service. It is essential preparation for the study abroad program to be undertaken by students in the Bachelor of International Studies program at 300 level.
