This course is intended for international students who are entering a U.S. college. It focuses on improving international students’ cross-cultural competence and granting opportunities for analyzing complex social, moral, and academic issues that students will have to face while in the U.S. In addition it provides tools and strategies for students to analyze their own culture and compare it with new ones. As students learn more about themselves and others, the risk of cultural conflict and culture shock are decreased. This course is open only to international students.
