NWC 210CC - Different Together: Living & Learning Interculturally

(3 credits) (NWCore option under Cross-Cultural Engagement)
This interdisciplinary and experiential course will guide students in developing their critical understanding, attitudes, and skills for living effectively with others in our multicultural world. Readings from religion, social science, and professions will inform discussion of observations and questions from students’ own interactions. Students will explore complex intersectional group identities, learn to distinguish between cultural and personal differences, and how to respectfully engage differences as well as similarities. Students will select a particular culture to explore and engage in depth, applying their learning and reflecting with others on those experiences. They will better understand themselves as cultural persons interacting with other cultural persons everywhere all the time.

Prerequisite: NWC101 or NWC105.
