By gaining skills in applied missiology, critical thinking, research, writing, and intercultural communication, you’ll be able to contribute positively to God’s global purposes.
This major’s core courses draw from the fields of missiology, Christian ministry, anthropology, and biblical studies. You can choose electives from a number of other fields to shape the major towards your own individual interests and goals. The courses balance theory and practice, teaching both collaborative and critical thinking to help you identify and use your diverse spiritual gifts, passions, talents, and skills to impact the world.
You'll learn from faculty members with decades of academic and practical experience, who are part of large, influential networks in their fields. They are committed to the interdisciplinary approach of the Intercultural Studies major and how it will broaden your perspective on where and how you serve.
