Ziele (*)The course is competence oriented and designed to help the students to develop their cross-cultural awareness in interpersonal and professional communications. The course encompasses a theoretical and a practical part.
The theoretical part is be based on major theories and approaches in intercultural communications that have been developing from the time of its appearance as a scholarly discipline and includes the American and European experience (Edward T. Hall, Geert Hofstede, Richard D.Lewis) as well as the Russian one (Svetlana Ter-Minasova, Valerii Zusman and others).
The practical part of the course is incorporated into lectures and focuses on case studies, discussions and cross-cultural problems solving, which acquires an additional acuteness in the multicultural context of the programme.
The uniqueness of the course is in the combination of traditional and novel approaches to intercultural issues involving the approach suggested by Nizhny Novgorod scholars (who have been developing their own view on the cross-cultural communication matters since 2000). That is why some of the information studied in the course could be obtained only through listening lectures or reading the sources in Russian.
Lehrinhalte (*)The short-term aim of the course is to help students the students to cope with the cultural shock they are experiencing during the programme, especially at its beginning.
The long-term orientation of the course is to develop the intercultural awareness which will help the students in their professional activities.
