CULTURE COURSE – Thursday, September 14, BIII | Thursday, February 8 at 11:00, B23

Join the Culture Course led by Caleb Daniel House, MSc. (USA). 

Caleb House was born and raised in Northern California.  Since 2003 he has lived in 10 countries across Europe, Asia, and Africa as a student, volunteer, teacher, researcher, and project manager.  Along the way, he slowly realized that the deep differences in culture are not the main problem, rather the way we think about culture can have a make-or-break impact on the experience abroad. Through a long process of failures and successes, he developed a set of tools to overcome the challenges and to make the most of living in a foreign country.  Since 2018 he has worked in the International Relations Office of the Czech Technical University in Prague.

The Culture Course provides insight into culture shock, culture fatigue, how to think about culture when you're a foreigner, or how to make the most of your time in a foreign country despite challenges.

Studying at UCT
