Culture encompasses our habits, our lifestyle, our language—it shapes who we are has humans. The intercultural studies minor will expose you to cultural contexts other than your own. You will learn central elements of understanding and working in diverse and different cultural environments.
- Courses discuss many of the topics enveloped in culture: religion, political science, geography, sociology, theology and communication.
Skills in intercultural communication and understanding are highly valued in our increasingly globalized world. Because of this the intercultural studies minor supplements and enhances other study programs by exposing you to cross-cultural contexts and providing important insights about diverse and different cultural environments.
