Inhoud
"This three-EC elective aims at introducing students to the most relevant theories, concepts, and principles of intercultural communication. Factors inhibiting effective cross-cultural encounters and socially relevant issues attracting widespread debate such as immigration and acculturation will be discussed. The course will primarily have interactive plenary lectures and several non-lecture activities (film viewing, panel interviews). For this elective, students are expected to write an exposition paper on the culture of the country they are going to for the study exchange.
