科目概要

In this class students are introduced to contemporary cross-cultural learning and training in America. This learning is used in schools, public administration, social work settings and private enterprises in America to increase communication skills, mutual understanding and effective learning/working relationships among people of diverse backgrounds. After examining basic concepts such as culture, race, ethnicity, values, stereotypes, ethnocentrism and cultural relativity, we look at ideas about cultural sensitivity and cultural competence. Students will gain an insight into current thinking about culture, race, diversity and cultural awareness in American society.
