This program explores the nature of intercultural communication including an exploration of the basic principles of mindful communication and introspection and how to apply them. Woven throughout is an in-depth look at the culture of Thailand. Through class lectures, guest presentations, and visits to sites in Thailand, students will explore the nature of intercultural communication, including all related terminology and theory; will actively practice and participate in intercultural competence; will become more aware of the surrounding culture through observations, interviews, and intercultural contact; will understand the intersection between mindfulness and communication competence; and will learn and practice introspection and self-reflexivity.
