Description Cultural Perspectives is designed to help students to understand why people from diverse cultures and historical periods think differently, behave differently and, generally, have vastly different worldviews. This course is designed to help students to understand a little more about themselves, their family and friends and the reasons why people do things in particular ways, and believe the things that they do. It has a strong theoretical base but is also designed to encourage reflection.
