About the Course

The focus of the course is on the practical use of different research results within the field of inter-cultural communication, where English is a lingua franca. This mode of investigation covers several different areas: cultural identity, ethnocentrism, cultural diversity, (social) perception, communication and culture, linguistic and social differences, as well as other important aspects, such as cultural differences, stereotyping and culture shocks.

"Important additional information for the 2020 autumn semester in connection to the corona pandemic: if teaching and examination cannot be conducted on campus, the course will be offered in an online format instead"
