COMM360 Inclusive Communication (3 semester hours)

This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of how to effectively communicate across cultures within the United State and Globally from a critical and applicable perspective. This course will cover how communication is influenced by culture and cultural norms and how culture is perceived through communication. Students will self-reflect on their own cultural identity and examine how that influences their perception of communication and how they communicate in their own workplace. By the end of the course, students will create ways to identify and resolve cross-cultural communication conflicts and misunderstandings and incorporate cultural understanding and inclusive language into strategic communication.
