Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies


Master of Arts in intercultural Studies balances both theory and practical side of Mission to allow a more effective and practical execution out in the field.

The Master of Arts in intercultural Studies program will allow students to better understand diverse cultural differences so that they may establish relationships in various different situations to spread the Gospel. You will be able to grow and participate more professionally in missional ministries on the international stage and develop leadership skills as Missionaries.

This program will help develop relationships that will transform in the Gospel, in the local church, the work place, or the mission field, while interacting with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. We welcome those that are already serving as missionaries as well as those looking to spread the Word of God and become missionaries.
