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.
