Global and Intercultural Engagement

MAS 620

Together, we’ll develop and enhance critical intercultural competency skills, focusing on recognizing the needs of oppressed and marginalized groups, with a particular lens on issues of race and gender equity. You’ll examine your existing cultural perspectives and interconnections with groups that have a history of oppression, with sensitivity and respect for differences in perspectives, experiences, and values of others. We’ll explore ways to develop effective change strategies that will help you to promote social justice and intercultural understanding within your communities and beyond. You will emerge from this course with a holistic, empathetic approach to fostering connections between individuals and across cultures.
