LONS CCCO 106 Cross Cultural Connections (Core Course)
(2 credits)

This course seeks to give critical context to student’s experiences abroad and their reflections on living in another country, particularly the United Kingdom, both in the classroom, and outside it, through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. By discussing the various topics or themes which have created a distinctly British cultural experience—from food to religion, language to celebrity—the course encourages students to reflect not only on their shifting perspectives on the world or the ways in which their interactions abroad have had an impact on their roles as ‘global citizens;’ it also encourages students to challenge their understandings of what it means to be in an increasingly globalized and interconnected world. View complete syllabus.
