Become better prepared to deal with the variety of culturally challenging situations you will encounter in whichever part of the world you live and work. Develop an appreciation of the personal and professional benefits which come from being more culturally aware and competent in increasingly diverse settings. Explore what it means to belong to a culturally diverse, global society and be challenged by the social constructions of race, ethnicity, and culture. This subject provides a firm foundation for understanding and dealing with real world issues relating to culture and cultural differences, organized into two modules. The first module develops a clearer understanding of your own worldview, and how this potentially affects your communication and interactions with others. The second module targets concepts and skills for recognizing and addressing systemic discrimination. Learners are equipped along the way to resolve case studies on real-world issues relating to culture and cultural differences, through both reflective practice and effective writing. Your teaching team is a group of diverse and highly qualified academic and professional staff from two Colleges (Health & Medicine and Arts, Law & Education) and the Academic Division. All of them are able to draw on their considerable knowledge and experience of living and working with cultural diversity in their own and other countries.
