CAS 2760 Intercultural Communication
This course applies communication approaches and perspectives to intercultural communication processes within and outside of the United States. The major emphasis in the class is on face-to-face communication within and between members of different cultures and the impact of popular culture on those communications. Living in a global society, it is imperative to know how different cultures communicate around the world. In the course, students will examine the complex relationship between culture, communication, power, and context from three conceptual perspectives: the social scientific perspective, the interpretive perspective, and the critical perspective.
