INTU 3010: Global Cultural Awareness: Preparing to Study Abroad

This first course in a series of three 1-credit courses is a pre-departure seminar designed to give students the skill set to capitalize from the outset on the experiences, network connections, and academic environment that their particular exchange experience will offer. Prior to departure for study abroad, students have the option to develop a Service-Learning or Internship project to be conducted while abroad that will function as a point of class discussion for the following course taken while abroad.

3-credit series broken up over the course of 3 semesters:

  • 1 credit prior to study abroad
  • 1 credit during study abroad
  • 1 credit following study abroad

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the meaning of culture as it relates to identity and behavior
  • Build cross-cultural awareness, appreciation and respect
  • Gain a broader understanding of cultural and social issues in different regions of the world and explore ways that researchers study these issues.
