SPCH - Intercultural Communication - 00003955

Description: Speaking the same language does not guarantee effective communication when people come from different cultures. Increasing diversity in the workplace combined with the globalization of business require professionals to become better communicators across cultures. This course provides training in understanding the importance of intercultural communication and theories. Topics covered include: definitions of communication; definitions of culture and diversity of cultural patterns; cultural variables influencing communication, such as language, non-verbal behavior, perception, values, and beliefs; factors that facilitate or inhibit intercultural communication; and examination of American culture in comparison to other cultures.
