Intercultural Studies Minor

Program Overview

School: Seaver College
Location: Malibu

The Curriculum

Our intercultural studies minor is for students who want to better understand how people communicate across cultures. As technology and travel bring people from every nation together, future leaders need training to understand the power of cultural conditioning on the communication process. Our minor is for anyone who wants to pursue a career involving intercultural communication, be it as an educator, businessperson, diplomat, or informed world citizen.

Student Opportunities

Learning Beyond the Classroom

Our experiential learning opportunities encourage you to learn as you experience the "real world." This experience not only looks great on a resume, but also puts you ahead of other students when competing for similar jobs.

Outstanding Student Leaders

Students from all different majors at Seaver College participate in our extracurricular activities, combining their natural talents with their dedication and outstanding work ethics to refine their craft and become proud representatives of their particular programs. We are proud to highlight our wonderful student leaders and showcase their work and dedication to our programs.

Internships for Communication Majors

Communication internship programs provide opportunities for students studying journalism, organizational communication, public relations, and telecommunication to work in a professional capacity with newspapers, radio and television stations, and advertising and public relations agencies. Students gain field experience at the same time as, and as a part of, their academic training.
