International & Intercultural Communication
Welcome to the IIC Program! We are very pleased to welcome you for the 2020-2021 academic year to this unique interdisciplinary program that combines coursework in international & intercultural communication with international studies.
This is a student-based program that has evolved throughout the years in collaboration with faculty, staff, students, and administrators, as well as a great many internationally-focused organizations that have served as internship sites. We offer small courses and close connections with faculty through advising and in your classes, and also with other IIC students through our mentor program.
This handbook is designed to provide information about IIC policies and procedures, class schedules, and contact information, but is best used in collaboration with your advisor and the IIC director. Please read it carefully and also check it throughout your program because you will need to create and update a program statement or course plan and likewise toward the end of the program, follow specific procedures for graduation.
Good luck and we’re excited for the year ahead with a great group of new and continuing IIC students!
Renée Botta, Ph.D.
Director, International & Intercultural Communication Program
