This course will enable students to define culture and understand its meaning on a micro- as well as macro level. In this course students will be asked to reflect upon their own perceptions of culture and will also be provided with new insights regarding intercultural and multilingual communication, with both a theoretical background as well as in practice.

In the globalised world, inter- and intracultural communication is a vital part of every contemporary society. Even though the dynamics of communication and language are ever-changing, the cultural system is yet based on fixed social, communicational, and moral/ethic rules. This course aims at providing its participants with new insights, using the resources of intercultural and multilingualism research and theory in order to open new horizons both for Erasmus and native Austrian students.

Blended learning: online assignments (OLAT), compulsory classes, group work.

Continuous online home assignments, group project assignment and presentation, participation in class.
