Intercultural Relations

Overview

Globalization brings the people of the world closer together; however, discrimination and other forms of intolerance continue to cause problems. In our increasingly multicultural society these issues can lead to exclusion and inequality, often along racial and ethnic lines. Throughout the curriculum a number of topics will be explored including: diversity issues in a social context, critical differences in cross-cultural communication, and identifying the sources, causes, forms and manifestations of these issues in our society. This online program is a direct response to learning needs identified by a broad range of representatives from human services and justice agencies that recognize that racial inequity and negative stereotyping are significant social problems.

Note: Students have up to 7 years to complete all requirements.

You may enroll in a Continuing Education course at Canadore College if you are 19 years of age or older or if you have earned an Ontario Secondary School Diploma/Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.

Most college level courses require textbooks; textbooks are not included in the course fees. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase any required textbooks.

Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved.
