Digital Stories @ UMBC

intercultural communications:
MLL 406/606, 495/695

This course introduces the history and practices of the field of intercultural communication, including its diverse theoretical and conceptual approaches; its analytical and methodological tools of evaluation and assessment; basic principles of training and professional and career development opportunities in the various areas of the discipline, particularly as it is practiced at UMBC.

Since its beginning in 2004 this course has used digital storytelling as an introductory exercise, allowing students an opportunity to create personal reflective works. Telling their own story provides valuable insights into the filmmaking process as they prepare to tell the stories of others.
