Course: LRS 402. Cultural Literacies in Career Contexts (3)
Cultural Literacies in Career Contexts is designed to teach students to be culturally competent in increasingly diverse career contexts. Students examine assumptions about cultural norms, analyze what culture is and study how power and difference intersect with cultural beliefs. The course addresses the intersectionality of gender, race, class and sexuality in developing students’ cultural literacies as these dimensions crucially impact interactions in the working world. Students learn how culture shapes their worldview and increases their awareness of their own cultural backgrounds, and the contexts (social, cultural and historical) in which they live and communicate.
