Enrollment Window Open for Introduction to Culture – 22-28 September
In response to the Department of Defense and Air Force guidance to provide cultural education and awareness to the enlisted corps, the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) and the Air Force Culture and Language Center (AFCLC) are offering a Distance Learning Course, Introduction to Culture, providing the principles of culture in an applied context.
CLTR201, Introduction to Culture, is a general education course that fulfills three resident hours of Institutional and/or Program Elective credit required for the CCAF Associate of Applied Science degree. The course offers a survey of different aspects of culture (domains, skills, and attitudes) enhancing cross-cultural competency (3C) and laying a cultural foundation for Airmen in today’s complex operational environment.

Introduction to Culture (through readings, videos and simulations) explores subjects such as elements of culture, family relationships, religion, belief systems, how one makes a living, sports, and other important cultural domains. It also includes lessons on cross-cultural communication and cross-cultural conflict reinforced through actual narratives of Airmen’s personal and professional experiences.
The course, including all instructional material, is provided at no cost. It’s delivered via Air University’s web-based Canvas learning management system (LMS). Reliable access to the internet for course participation and research is required. Activities consist of readings, multimedia clips, short quizzes, and simulations. The course consists of 12 modules. Students will be tested by a series of Milestone Assignments.
