Subtitle Intercultural Communication as a Foundation for English Skills
Course Outline Major theories, concepts, and contemporary research findings of intercultural communication studies will be discussed. The course aims to provide students with the knowledge to use English in a communicatively competent manner at higher education settings (e.g., graduate schools or research institutes at foreign countries). Lectures will be given in Japanese, though students may ask questions and/or write reports in either Japanese or English. The course grades will be determined based on: (a) active class participation (note: merely attending classes will not count toward grades); (b) chapter quizzes; (c) final exam; and (d) group report on students' intercultural experiences in daily lives.本授業では異文化コミュニケーション学における主要な理論、概念、および最新の知見について講義を行います。講義は学生の皆さんが海外の大学院や諸研究機関等の高等教育場面に置いて英語を適切かつ的確に用いるために必要な知識を身につけることを目的とします。講義そのものは日本語で行いますが、授業中の質問あるいはレポートの執筆は日本語・英語どちらを用いても結構です。成績は( a )授業への積極的参加(注:単に授業に出席しただけでは評価の対象とはしませんのでご理解ください);( b )教科書の各章についての小テスト;( c ) 期末試験;および( d )日常生活における異文化体験についてのグループ研究レポート;以上、四項目に基づいて決定します。
