During this course at the Maastricht Summer School, students will be provided with a fundamental introduction to Intercultural Communication by focusing on theory and acquiring intercultural competences for their professional and personal life. A local field trip is also included in the course.


Key facts:

  • Intercultural Communication skills are crucial in today’s ever changing world. As we encounter the challenges of globalized business and rapid cross cultural communication in our daily lives, these skills will enable us to maximize exchanges in a global setting and address diversity from an intercultural perspective. In order to ensure personal and professional successes, it is essential that we endeavor to study models in intercultural communication theory. Furthermore, to develop the skills to translate this knowledge into practical application relevant to education, business, training and research will give us the competitive edge in the global marketplace.
  • The course, ICC2001 Intercultural Communication at the Maastricht Summer School, provides a fundamental introduction to Intercultural Communication. We will examine the following key concepts: culture, race, gender, ethnicity, stereotypes, values, expectations and assumptions. By focusing on applied outcomes of intercultural communication theory, the course leads students to acquire intercultural competences for their professional and personal life. Students will learn interpretative strategies in intercultural communication concepts that allow them to become culturally intelligent. They will acquire tools that will enable them to avoid attribution errors when communicating across cultures. Students will participate in interactive exercises to practice their intercultural competences.
  • A field trip in the local area will also be a part of the course.
