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.
