Explores cultural expectations and underpinnings in the university community and beyond, enabling students to interact more effectively in the U.S. Examines everyday experiences as well as more impactful events with potentially global implications (e.g., major elections and changes in laws or policies). It also touches on significant issues such as the digital revolution and the rise of social media; the intersecting issues of class, race, religion, politics, and gender; and contradictory or seemingly surprising aspects of life in the U.S. Students develop and use critical thinking skills to analyze and interpret socio-cultural phenomena. Discussion is stimulated by actual experiences, student observations, cultural comparisons, video clips, and readings.
