COM3051 Spec Topics: Intercultural Competence


Intercultural competence refers to the ability to interact effectively with persons of different cultures. It requires an integration of awareness, attitude, knowledge, and skills. Ultimately this results in forming relationships across cultural boundaries and with improved decision-making and social engagement/work performance in multi-cultural settings. In particular, students will research the differences in cultural attitudes and potential modification needed for engagement in business, health care, and education. Intercultural competence is not simply visiting and learning about another culture, but to think critically about one’s own culture and to acquire the process of coming to understand a new culture which can be used to adapt to a variety of cultures. Students must have completed three courses at the 2000 level with grades of C or higher, as prerequisites for this course. Students may not receive credit for both COM 2051  and COM3051.
