Abstract: Intercultural education is a relatively new concept in Romania and complex that encompasses a series of psychological, anthropological, linguistic, geopolitical, religious aspects. Also, carrying out the pedagogical activity in a multicultural setting requires special rigor in terms of respecting some principles and values: respecting human rights, the absence of discriminatory phenomena (all students are treated and respected equally regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, social class, religion, etc.), encouraging the expression of points of view, respect for different cultural values, capitalizing on cultural empathy. Intercultural psychology is the basis of understanding the way of action of an individual according to the influence on him of culture, customs, traditions. The heterogeneity of the student group requires a special approach from the teaching staff. He must have at least basic, usual information about ethnic and national diversities, elementary notions of the anthropology of peoples. In the absence of these notions, a difficulty can be noted in the implementation of the study discipline with everything it includes, the transmission of information, the evaluation of the accumulated knowledge, and the obtaining of feedback.
