The primary aims of this unit are to enable students to develop an understanding of cultural diversity, and to equip them to respond appropriately to social and cultural difference. It outlines the core features of culture and communication as human constructs, and explores key questions concerning interactions between groups that are defined by cultural, ethnic, socio-economic or religious differences. The unit provides students with a conceptual understanding of intercultural communication as well as practical skills for interacting across a range of cultural contexts. Perspectives on cultural competence will be explored and illustrated with case studies and examples from a variety of international settings.
