This course will examine cultural dynamics and academic systems unique to international students’ transition and adjustment into U.S. higher educational environments. This intensive college readiness course is grounded on current literature demonstrating direct relationships between pre-departure cultural and academic training with post-arrival student retention, health, socialization, and professional development. This course investigates cultural differences and similarities between their culture and the U.S. culture before creating action plans for experiential learning, skill development, and preparation skills for life and study in the U.S. This course teaches U.S. student responsibilities and ethics, U.S. classroom dynamics and study skills, initiates early U.S. campus engagement, language and communication skills, cultural integration, and professional development strategies. This course’s theoretical and practical coursework increases intercultural competencies that empower new international students to navigate complex communities on and off campus. Through study abroad case studies, international students will identify better strategies to proactively manage post-arrival adjustment into U.S. academics, social, and professional systems.
