SPCM 8800: SEMINAR IN INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION
The seminar in intercultural communication serves two basic goals: (1) a
graduate-level survey of research and theory that bears on communication
within and between cultural groups, and (2) an opportunity to explore in
depth some specific foci of interest pertaining to communication across
cultures. In the spirit of seminar, all efforts will be made to tailor
the course to needs and interests of seminar members.
Seminar members will prepare and present common and individual readings.
Members can also expect to write and present some brief, relatively
speculative reports ["heuristic interviews and observations"]. Each
will also conduct a more rigorous group or individual research project
pertaining to one of the special foci.
Potential textbooks include Handbook of International and Intercultural
Communication [W. Gudykunst & B. Moody, eds., Sage, 2001]; The
Ethnography of Communication [M. Saville-Troike, Blackwell, 2003]. One
or two additional readings per week should also be expected.

The Student Government Association is currently working on a project
through the Academic Affairs Committee that will serve as an extension
of such programs as Freshman Orientation and Dawg Camp. UGA Experience
will be offered to incoming freshmen as an eight week, one hour course
this upcoming fall. The goal of this course is to ensure that freshmen
are fully acclimated to the University and realize all it has to offer.
Study abroad is a large part of college and the UGA experience.
Therefore, SGA is hoping to focus one of the class sessions on the study
abroad programs available through the University. To effectively inform
students, SGA needs your help. They are looking for students who have
previously studied abroad, and who would be willing to speak with these
classes. If you are interested, please contact Mary-Kate Murray
