  • Basic knowledge of contemporary issues facing the Czech Republic in historical context.   
  • Awareness of their cultural perspective and a critical understanding of how that perspective impacts their reaction to and interaction with others.  
  • Understanding of how to navigate cultural complexities in order to more productively and appropriately interact and communicate across cultural differences.  
  • Understanding that the cultural adaptation skills, including intercultural communication and cultural empathy, developed in their study abroad experience with IFSA, can be constructively utilized when engaging with difference of any kind in the future.
