SPH 123 - Intercultural Communication

Why Study Intercultural Communication?

Some quotes from Samovar and Porter, our textbook authors:

"It is to the advantage of the 5.5 billion of us who share the planet to improve our interpersonal and intercultural communication abilities." 

"The 20th century is when the world cultures’ people first began to take each other seriously."

The Washington Post, August 30, 1998: 

"I like the area...I can meet people of all backgrounds, all ethnicities...It’s easy to feel at home here."

Parek Maduot, U MD student from Sudan, Africa 

"Fewer than 10 percent of the world’s 186 countries are ethnically homogeneous, and the rest are multiethnic states." 

"In 1994, 8.7% of Americans were born in other countries."

"The foreign-born now account for about one in six [Washington] area residents." (In 1980 it was one in 12, in 1990 it was one in eight.)
