[Course Guide]

Sub Title:

Seen from Japanese communication patterns

Course Description:

This course has three interrelated purposes. The first is to help students learn some essential elements of Japanese psychology and culture, and their implications for communication patterns of Japanese people both among themselves and in intercultural settings. The second is to help students to examine both difficulties/challenges and excitements/joys of intercultural communication by learning key concepts and issues of intercultural communication. The third is to facilitate both Japanese and international students’ on-going intercultural communication both by increasing self-awareness of how
their respective cultures affect their communication patterns and by arranging them to learn to work together successfully on group projects which will serve as testing grounds for their intercultural communication.

Classes: 13
