Students in this class study, compare, and contrast the values, beliefs, behaviors, systems and cultures of the U.S. with those of at least one other country. Part of the course concentrates on discovering and defining what it means to be “American.” Students then undergo intensive immersion in a foreign culture to learn about similarities and differences in perspectives, values, beliefs, systems, and behaviors. In so doing, students develop a better understanding of who they are as well as of the interdependence and interrelatedness of the world’s many cultures.
