Students will develop skills, knowledge and understanding that will help them communicate and engage more appropriately and effectively in both Peru and in other intercultural contexts. They will explore various topics in intercultural communication in the context of education abroad, and will practice intercultural learning processes that can be applied in a wide variety of contexts. Participants will increase their own cultural self-awareness and develop personal leadership skills to become more effective in an interdependent world.
