This course offers a unique opportunity for students to engage in intercultural communication with college students in other parts of the world without having to leave the classroom. Intercultural exchange is conducted using written communications (online chatting and collaborative paper assignments) and "face-to-face" real time group discussions via video conference. Students will learn about intercultural communication concepts and how social identities can influence communication. Students will discuss various topics with their non-UM partners such as: college life, culture/traditions, religion/spirituality, and stereotypes/prejudices.

Crs Requirements: Classroom exercises and three 3-5 page papers (one for each partner institution). Attendance is mandatory.

Intended Audience: Global Scholars Program students/1st & 2nd year students interested in intercultural communication.

Class Format: 3 hours per week in seminar format; 90 minute sessions twice per week
