In response to Department of Defense and Air Force guidance to provide cultural education and awareness to the military personnel, Air University and the Air Force Culture and Language Center offers a distance learning course, Introduction to Culture, providing the principles of culture in an applied context. The course presents a survey of different aspects of culture (domains, skills, and attitudes), enhancing cross-cultural competency and laying a cultural foundation for Airmen in today’s complex operational environment.

CLTR201, Introduction to Culture, is offered to enlisted members of the U.S. Armed Forces participating in the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) program. It fulfills three semester hours of Institutional (Resident) and/or Program Elective credit requirements of the CCAF Associate of Applied Science degree. Additionally, credits earned now will fulfill core requirements of the forthcoming Military Technology and Applied Sciences Management (MTASM) degree, which is projected to launch in FY2023. 

CCAF General Catalog:

Introduction to Culture (through readings, videos, and simulations) explores subjects such as 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 via Air University’s web-based Canvas learning management system. 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, and students are tested by a series of Milestone Assignments and Final Exam.
