INTS 294 Encountering Other Cultures: Pre Departure

Spring, Fall

This course is designed to prepare students for their study abroad experience and to help them derive maximum benefit from their time abroad. Studying or interning in a different country can be exciting and life-changing. It can also be confusing and frustrating, especially if you are not prepared for the different cultural context and are uncertain about the prevailing social norms or work habits of the host country. This first course will prepare the student for his or her first exposure to living, studying, and working in a foreign country.
