Intercultural Studies Department
If you have interest in serving others at home or abroad, the ICS program will prepare you to become the means of transformation wherever God plants you. We do this by concentrating on three core skills: (1) Adapting successfully to cross-cultural life and ministry (2) Breaking cultural barriers to communicate effectively (3) Leading across cultures for lasting and meaningful impact. ICS includes a semester-long internship overseas where you will serve with the guidance of an experienced missionary. You will be mentored by experienced missionaries who are passionate about inspiring the next generation of mission leaders.

Intercultural Studies Graduates
My time at Emmaus Bible College was not only an excellent education—it was a life-changing experience. From taking classes with professors who really care about you to late-night conversations in the dorms with long-lasting friends, my time at Emmaus was unforgettable.
My time at Emmaus equipped me to engage in cross-cultural ministry to build bridges and discover relevant strategies to minister to my audience. I was given the keys to both lead in ministry and unlock the challenges of ministry. The Emmaus experience I had led to lifelong friendships, unforgettable memories, refined Bible study skills, and the tools to serve others more effectively.
