Culture and Communication in Design I

An understanding of language and culture is crucial for design students and professionals.

This course will give international students exposure to cultural norms in the U.S., a forum to reflect on experiences, and confidence in speaking and interacting with others. Students will reflect on key cultural topics as they apply to work in design and life in Chicago. Students will refine their communication skills in social and academic interactions and apply their language skills through excursions to culturally significant places of interest in and around Chicago.
