Course Overview

Over the course of a semester period ( 15 weeks ) in their home communities, students will engage in an interactive cultural diversity experience (through combined observation and actual interactions) with a cultural group/community different from their own. The design and approval for this study will take place during Diversity Foundations 2 in the summer prior to the fall semester in which this practicum experience begins. The objectives of the practicum are to develop deeper awareness, knowledge and appreciation for another cultural group. Students will notice the skills that they have/need to develop in order to work effectively with culturally different groups. They will continue to reflect on themselves as cultural beings and how their own identities and worldviews impact the way in which they perceive, understand and interact with people who are culturally different from themselves.
