Cultures, Languages and Communication - INTS100

This unit introduces students to the concepts of culture, language, and communication, and explores how they operate in the context of intercultural communication. Particular emphasis is given to the relationship between language, culture, identity, and representation, and how this plays out in a range of settings including in relation to the language studies that students undertake as a part of the Bachelor of International Studies and Bachelor of International Studies/Law degrees. The unit develops students' global mobility through analytical and critical engagement with key concepts, as well as practical skills for communication in intercultural settings, such as multinational businesses or the diplomatic service. It is essential preparation for the study abroad program undertaken by students in the Bachelor of International Studies program at 300 level.
