HON 351 Global Reflection

.50 credit

The course will require an in-depth analysis of academic texts that challenge students to contextualize their experience relative to their own perspectives, including reactions to and judgments about a foreign culture shaped by a lens of their own inevitable cultural bias. This approach is designed to advance their intercultural competencies. Students will also be required to retrospectively interrogate their initial onsite journal entries and subsequently generate written and oral responses to their experience from an informed exit-reflection perspective. In addition, students will be mentored through the difficult process of articulating the benefits and challenges of their study abroad experience and, most significantly, its impact in terms of transferable skills for their future.
