Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.
Hours & Credits
Through experiential learning based on theoretical frameworks, students will develop intercultural awareness and criticality by researching, analyzing and evaluating beliefs, values, practices and identity in their own and other cultures. Students will develop competencies for effective, empathetic interaction in international and multicultural contexts and a deep understanding of the relationship between language and individual perceptions of the world, attitudes and behavior.
