Intercultural Thinking: You will

  • evaluate generalizations about cultural groups,
  • analyze how cultural beliefs might affect communication across cultures,
  • evaluate how specific approaches to global issues will affect multiple cultural communities, and
  • untangle competing economic, religious, social or geographical interests of cultural groups in conflict.
