Cross Cultural Studies

Cross Cultural Studies

By living in another culture for several weeks or a semester, students have the opportunity to understand the paradoxes, tensions, consistencies and values in a society significantly different from their own. Direct experience within other cultures develops an appropriate sense of self-awareness of one's own cultural assumptions and the pervasiveness of cross-cultural encounters in the human experience. Cross-Cultural courses lay a foundation in the outcome of Social Responsibility.

Why does it matter?

This immersion equips students for appropriate interaction with persons of different social norms, appreciate multiple viewpoints, and recognize the importance of developing mutual trust and respect in cross-cultural interaction when relating to others or living in complex situations.
