In a multicultural classroom students will explore a biblical perspective of culture and cultural identity. Attention will be given to the diversity of communication styles, values and worldviews, including the songs, the stories, the history and the dreams of each culture. Awareness of one's own culture and the culture of others are major goals of this course. Particular attention will be given to intercultural relationships and the building of bridges of reconciliation to people and cultures offended by other people groups as well as to language acquisition skills. Note: Students who have completed CHR 235 or HMT 231 may not take this course for credit.
