COM2051: Intercultural Communication in Putney, VT and Québec City, Canada
July 9 – July 29, 2023
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.
Students in this program will spend the two weeks of the course on Landmark College's Putney, VT campus and will travel to Quebec City, Canada for one week of the course.
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.
