You Are Here:

Intercultural Studies A.A.

Our degree program equips you with practical skills in cross-cultural living and helps you develop an understanding of the diversity of cultures throughout the world.

The world around us is constantly changing, bringing forth new ideas, new ways to communicate, and new traditions. That means Christians have to stay up-to-date with shifting cultures. Our program will provide you with practical training in intercultural communication, best practices in modern missions, and team building.


You will learn from professors who have served in communities around the world. Under their leadership, you will receive hands-on experience in engaging other cultures, and you’ll also learn the dynamics of living in another culture and successfully reaching it for Christ.


You will be challenged to grow your faith and develop a Christian worldview that will influence your calling and purpose. And, you’ll be ready to answer a calling or go on to a four-year degree.
