This course builds on COM 130, but with an emphasis on how to develop skills for communicating competently in an increasingly diverse society. Students will explore how culture is communicated verbally and non-verbally, and how to interpret and understand culturally-specific communicative practices. They will also learn how to establish, develop and manage relationships with culturally different peoples, and how to recognize and overcome cultural stereotypes and prejudices.
Prerequisite: Must have completed one of the following: COM-100, COM-130, or 30 credits.
