RHET 055 - Intercultural Communication

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course is an exploration of the interdependent relation of communication and culture. The ways in which culture influences individuals’ strategies for communicating is examined as well as the role of communication in constructing culture. Among the questions we will consider are the following:  What is culture? In what sense are people influenced by their culture? What is the relation between culture and identity? How does culture influence the way(s) we make sense of the world, of our relation to each other and, of ourselves?  How does culture influence communication? Through a combination of lectures, discussions, and class projects, we will experience and analyze intercultural contact in order to understand the nature of cultural differences and their impact on communication.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
May not be taken on Pass/D+/D/Fail basis.
