Minor in Intercultural Studies

The minor in Intercultural Studies is a program of study designed to provide the student with the underlying philosophy of biblical missions, an in-depth study of a missionary’s life and work, and some initial training in cross-cultural transitions.  Coursework for the minor can be used to fulfill elective requirements in a major area of study.
