SPA 376 - Study Abroad Cross-Cultural Preparation

(1 credit)
Lack of cross-cultural competence and sensitivity is a prominent cause of much frustration and anger between visitors to a country and the individuals living in that country. In preparation for their semester study abroad, in this course students will learn common cross-cultural skills and become aware of the joys and challenges they will face in those months. They will also spend time learning about the country in which they will be studying so they are well-versed in the basic historical, political, economic, social and cultural issues that country has dealt with and is dealing with.

Prerequisite: Acceptance into a study abroad program approved by Northwestern College for Spanish majors.
