SOC 204 Cultural Diversity

The process of globalization increases our exposure to diverse cultures and ethnic traditions that characterize the peoples of the world. This rich diversity can form the foundation for addressing the global challenges we collectively face or can be viewed as a polarizing force that generates conflict. This course focuses on the key concepts and skills of inter-cultural communication and develops analytical tools from the social sciences for understanding how social identity shapes living and working in the global community.
