This course focuses on the relationship between communication and culture. Students explore the ways in which cultural values, attitudes and assumptions are reflected in the communication process.

The semester begins with a self-analysis of the students’ own cultural identities and communication styles. Students then examine verbal and nonverbal communication patterns from a cross-cultural perspective. The students work toward refining their oral communication skills by preparing oral presentations and leading group discussions.

Quebec Study Abroad Program Details & FAQs

  • Students in this program will spend two weeks at our Putney, VT campus and one week in Quebec, Canada. Transportation to Quebec will be by bus or train.

    Free time/Independence: variable. While on campus, free time will be similar to any other campus course - this program takes place during the second summer session on campus. While in Quebec, the group will have many structured activities but most days will include some free time.

    Physical Demands: moderate. In Quebec, the program will include some walking around the city, standing in museums or other locations, and possibly some walking or light hiking on excursions outside the city.

    Transitions: low. The group will travel together to Quebec, and will stay in the same location in the city for the duration of the visit.

    Stimuli: low to moderate. Quebec is a small city and will therefore have pedestrian and vehicle traffic. However, the majority of the program is on campus.
