Spring Break Away 2015 - Rome
Course: COMM 114/407 Intercultural Communications
[satisfies Core Theme Area: Global Diversity]
Our diverse world requires us to communicate with culturally-diverse others no matter what our personal background or choice of profession. This course will focus on the importance of communication among and between politically, culturally and ethnically diverse people and how such communication can affect our relationships as well as our personal and professional choices. We will study the theoretical and practical applications of communicating in a diverse world, employing Italian culture as one of our guides.
We will immediately put these newly learned theories of intercultural communication into action by traveling to Rome during Spring Break. As a cosmopolitan city that has hosted pilgrims from various cultures around the world from antiquity to contemporary times, our trip will allow us to experience the magnificent city of Rome as contemporary pilgrims who are developing our intercultural lens.
