|Description:||The Bachelor of Arts degree in Intercultural Studies combines solid academic study with service-based experience under a mentor. Jesus modeled this practice-orientated approach to learning when he trained his disciples (see Luke 10:1-23). The ICS internship is a critical component of the program where students experience life in another context to better understand intercultural dynamics. The ICS degree is holistic and integrative and will equip you to better understand and interpret the Bible, appreciate and serve in new cultures, understand complexities of church ministry and community development, and explore your calling. Students graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in ICS have gone on to serve cross-culturally in a variety of contexts including non-profit organizations, peace and justice advocacy, urban ministry, social services and education. Students can also pursue a graduate degree in their focused area of interest.|
