Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

The goal of the class is to expose students to cross-cultural differences in a wide range of topics, ranging from ethnicity and race, values, religion, ethics, gender, sexual orientation to behavioral norms. Throughout the semester, students will examine and analyze these issues through a selection of films that offer vivid portrayals of how people from across the world live and work. Through in-class discussion of these films, along with assigned readings, the course aims to help students gain cross-cultural competence in cognition, affect and behavior.
