This elective course aims at exploring the multifaceted and dynamic connections of diversity, culture and communication, thus providing assistance in learning how to interact with diverse populations – people, who think, feel and behave differently than we do. The major focus of the course are issues related to (1) encountering differences, cross-cultural adjustment and a multicultural world, (2) value systems, verbal and nonverbal communication, and (3) dominant international cultural patterns and cross-cultural variables in western and Kazakhstani communication. The study of intercultural communication can enhance understanding of our own culture in relation to other cultures and, as a result, enable students to conceptualize areas of potential misunderstandings including the area of international business communication.
