The Intercultural and International Communication program from the University of Oklahoma is designed to prepare students to conduct original research in one or more specialty areas exploring the process of human communication, with emphases on the social, psychological, political, and cultural effects of human interaction.


Intercultural Communication

This area of study focuses on the communication processes that occur when individuals of differing cultural backgrounds (including ethnic and racial) come into direct contact with one another. Research in this area addresses communication-related issues pertaining to a variety of social contexts, from interpersonal and small group contexts to those of multicultural organizations and local communities. Also integral to this area are "cultural communication" studies examining unique communication practices within a specific culture, as well as "cross-cultural communication" studies comparing communication patterns in two or more cultures.

International Communication

This area focuses on the critical examination of media and culture in international contexts. Using different methodological approaches that include ethnography, phenomenology and hermeneutics, textual/discourse/critical analysis, and quantitative methods, it explores how cultural understandings intersect with media processes, products, and audiences. This research sheds light on how media and cultures shape social fabrics, from local specificities to globalized networks. It explores culture and media processes as contested zones traversed by ethnic, class, and gender struggles for social change.

Intercultural and International Communication program is offered at the University of Oklahoma.
