Description: 

While there are many definitions of "culture", most have in common the characteristic behaviors, values, and beliefs of a group and those items of excellence influenced by those values, beliefs, and behaviors. This course will examine the culture of Italy from the point of view of Americans who are alert to their own country's culture. Through academic and first-hand field experiences, students will search out the values and characteristics perhaps unique to the Italians, make comparisons and contrasts with their own culture, and thereby increase their own intercultural competency. Learning will involve class discussions, lectures, introspective and public writing, workshops, oral presentations, and field trips.
