CORE COURSE OPTIONS

Communication and Conflict: A Cross-Cultural Perspective
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
We live in paradoxical times: technology-driven globalization constantly reduces differences between cultures and online communication has become universal and omnipresent, but cultural and ethnic tensions appear to be on the rise. What is the role of communication in not just helping to resolve but sometimes also in acerbating such conflicts? Drawing on theory and methodology from diverse fields we examine cultural and related differences in communication, we investigate cultural misunderstandings and conflicts in two contrasting European contexts covering four distinct countries: Denmark, Sweden, the UK, and Ireland.
Week-Long Study Tour: Belfast-Dublin
Core Course Week: Southern Sweden 

New Media and Changing Communities 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
How do new media and tech facilitate or challenge democracy, collaboration and community building? The ambition of this course is to understand the historical and contemporary importance of media in creating communities. We hone your critical media literacy and examine how both new and existing communities are imagined, constructed, and represented in online media and tech. The course also focuses on the controversy of surveillance, privacy, and the dark side of the web. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Brussels or Dublin
