2 cr.

Course Description

This course is designed for students who are preparing to study and/or work abroad. Studying abroad is a unique opportunity that more and more students are taking advantage of in an effort to become more worldly, improve their employment prospects after graduation, and to gain a better understanding of different political and economic systems, dissimilar cultures, histories, and norms, divergent religious beliefs and practices, as well as the diversity of languages that are spoken in our increasingly globalized world. The ultimate goal of this course is for students to be better prepared for what they will experience when they travel abroad in order that they can make the most of their overseas travels and experiences.
