INTS 295 Encountering Other Cultures: The Return

Spring, Fall

This course welcomes students back from their semester/year abroad and facilitate re-entry to Rhodes. Students will identify their new intercultural competencies, explore the cultural learning they’ve gained through their study abroad experiences, and extend and apply that learning in new situations. Focus will be placed on using new skills in old settings, reflecting on internal changes and the student’s cultural adaptation experiences, and folding the student’s new academic knowledge into the Rhodes classrooms and conversations. By the end of this class, students should have a firm understanding on how to keep transforming their study abroad experiences into vibrant parts of their story for application in present and future life.
