This course explores the inextricable and multidimensional relationships among race, culture, and communication by providing students with an extensive theoretical framework to enhance their understanding of interracial communication. Specific attention is geared toward the construction of one's own racial and ethnic identity as well as those of other groups. As part of the course, students are given assignments. They are required to keep a record of 16 "racial encounters" during the semester in which they are part or have observed, prepare interracial communication analysis paper, and experience other culture events.
