Transfer students will register for CCS101 for one credit.
The Cultural Seminar, which is taken in the first semester, begins the exploration of culture through the study of one's own culture and a different culture. This course develops oral communication skills through critical reading and discussion.
The Writing Seminar is taken during the first or second semester, includes cross-cultural readings, and develops foundational writing skills.
The Cross-Cultural Designation course is taken after the Cultural and Writing Seminars. This course satisfies a Distribution requirement, continues development of writing skills, and includes significant cross-cultural themes as preparation for the Cross-Cultural Experience.
The Cross-Cultural Experience course is taken concurrently or after the Cross-Cultural Development course. In an off-campus setting, students apply knowledge learned in the previous three courses through interactions with cultures other than their own. (CCS300 for 2 credits, NCEP courses for 4 credits, or study abroad for 12+ credits)
