GL 110V - The Cross-Cultural Experience (1-3)

Its aim is to place the experience of living abroad in a meaningful context so that students are provided with a sense of the historical and contemporary culture of the city and country in which they study. This course incorporates an interdisciplinary approach to the topics of identity and culture by examining Christian theology, history, cultural studies, political science, commerce, art and music to develop a snapshot of host culture. You will derive meaningful interpretations of identity and culture while comparing these perceptions to our own preconceived understandings of American identity and culture. Based upon your perceptions and growth throughout the semester, you will also reflect upon how “life abroad” has impacted your own sense of identity.
