Global Understanding

This course offers a very unique opportunity for UACS students to learn about other cultures in a face-to face environment without having to leave their classroom. This class is designed to make the most of interactive technologies to give UACS students the opportunity to communicate with students in different countries live time. This way, students at each participating university can learn about a number of different cultures while simultaneously helping to teach about their own. The cultural exchange is based both on written communications between pairs of students (via ‘chatting’ and combined assignments) as well as through “web-streamed” face-to-face dialogue.
