Intercultural Studies (MA)
The Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies is a fully-online degree program that prepares students for many types of cross-cultural ministry, providing them with a solid framework for examining and engaging their ministry context with a broad missiological lens. The degree is intended for students with diverse levels of cross-cultural experience, and emphasizes scholarship and practical experience. Students combine a core of foundational and advanced courses with one of five concentrations: Community Development, Cross-Cultural Engagement, Cross-Cultural Church Planting, Translation, or Customized Concentration. Depending on their concentration, graduates are equipped for missional, parachurch, development, and marketplace roles in the cross-cultural and local context, and may enter into such mission specialties as church planter, relief and aid worker, or Bible translator.
