The Global Community Health Major equips students to use holistic health and wellness education to spread the gospel message of Jesus Christ cross-culturally. Students combine the Intercultural Studies Core and foundational Public Health courses to prepare for working cross-culturally in mission and community health evangelism (CHE) and discipleship.
Students will benefit from Johnson’s accreditation, affordable tuition, and an experienced and engaged faculty dedicated to the spiritual formation and professional preparedness of each student. Both the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree coursework integrate a Bible & Theology Core and an Arts & Sciences Core. Bachelor of Arts degrees usually include 12 or more credits of foreign language study, while Bachelor of Science degrees include additional Natural Science (like Biology and Science Concepts) and Social and Behavioral Science courses (like Psychology and Economics). Students also apply their theoretical knowledge in real-world settings through professional internships.
When students complete this program, they will be able to do the following:
- Articulate biblical, theological, and missiological foundations for their chosen ministry field.
- Implement missional ministry within world contexts.
- Pursue Christian formational growth conducive to cross-cultural ministry.
- Acquaint students with the principles of lifetime health and fitness.
- Plan, implement, and evaluate disease prevention and health promotion programs within diverse communities.
- Serve as health education resource persons and engage in health advocacy.
