IN 395 - Leading Across Cultures: Internship Seminar

This course provides an introduction to the cultural context for the internship placement by examining cultural issues in the workplace with a particular focus on preparation for entering the work environment. Writing and discussion topics also introduce the concept of skill-building in cross-cultural competencies including cross-cultural communication, teamwork, and conflict mediation. The course consists of two parts: online pre-departure modules that prepare students for culturally appropriate résumé development and interviewing skills to facilitate proper placements, and on-site classroom discussions to enable students to process what they experience at the internship host organizations. In addition, students will be exposed to many work sectors/perspectives/realities, etc. through course-related trips and guest speakers.
