Intercultural Communication is designed to increase students’ knowledge about communicating with members of cultures other than their own. The course has six major objectives:  (1) to acquaint students with the concepts, principles, and theories of intercultural communication; (2) to provide students with information about other cultures; (3) to provide students with strategies for effective intercultural communication, (4) to encourage students to have intercultural contacts and global experiences, (5) to enable successful connectivity between theoretical knowledge and rich and profoundly diverse experiential learning, enabled through the unique Semester at Sea experience; and (6) to transform students into intellectually skilled and culturally sensitive world citizens, able to embrace global diversity as a valuable asset of communication in the 21st century.
