The Intercultural Communication Sequence, with both its disciplinary and interdisciplinary components, helps students become competent, reflective communicators in personal, public, and business settings. As the United States becomes increasingly diverse, organizations and companies nationwide are changing the way they operate and do business to address the needs of a multicultural society. Faculty and courses guide students in studying the implications of intercultural communication (communication between persons who have differing cultural, beliefs, values and ways of behaving) from domestic and international perspectives, and provide knowledge, motivation, and skills in preparation for advanced study, for becoming analytical, effective, and efficient communicators in a culturally diverse society, and for such specific professions as public and customer relations, political/social activism, organizational communication, consulting, foreign services, and human resources.
