    Abstract:
    Intercultural competence is the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to effectively and appropriately interact with people from different cultures. It also happens to be a qualification that twenty-first century employers deem highly valuable but often have trouble finding in their employees/job candidates. In this class, we will explore the meaning of intercultural competence and work on developing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for an intercultural mindset. Students will begin the semester by taking the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI®). The IDI® provides an individual profile report and an individual development plan for each student, which will then be utilized throughout the course to increase one’s own cultural self-understanding as well as cross-cultural awareness. We will study topics surrounding intercultural competence through readings, films, video clips, songs, and podcasts. Students will not be assessed on their level of intercultural competence but rather their level of engagement with the course material and intercultural development work.
