By AFCLC Outreach Team Air Force Culture and Language Center

Introduction to Cross-Cultural Communication, or CLTR202, is offered to enlisted members of the U.S. Armed Forces participating in the Community College of the Air Force program.

It fulfills three semester hours of Institutional (Resident) and/or Program Elective credit requirements of the CCAF Associate of Applied Science degree. Enrollment opens April 12-18, 2022.

In response to Department of Defense and Air Force guidance to provide cultural education and awareness to the military personnel, Air University and the Air Force Culture and Language Center offer a distance learning course, Introduction to Cross-Cultural Communication, providing the knowledge and skills associated with cross-cultural communication in an applied context.

The course presents foundational knowledge essential for developing cross-cultural communication competence, focusing on the concepts, skills, and applications relevant to military personnel.

Additionally, credits earned now will fulfill core requirements of the forthcoming Military Technology and Applied Sciences Management (MTASM) degree, which is projected to launch in FY2023.

Introduction to Cross-Cultural Communication (through readings, videos, and simulations) explores subjects such as levels of orientation, identities, cultural domains, the culture of the United States, nonverbal communication, and active listening. It also includes lessons on relationship-building and conflict resolution reinforced through actual narratives of Airmen’s personal and professional experiences.

Students are provided the course and all instructional material at no cost. The course content and readings are delivered via Air University’s web-based Canvas learning management system. Reliable access to the internet for course participation and research is required. The course consists of eight modules, which students will be tested on by a series of Milestone Assignments and a Final Exam.
