Minor in Intercultural Studies
The intercultural studies minor equips students in areas of theology, history, culture and strategic planning as each relates to cross-cultural evangelical witness and service. Students are prepared for diverse contexts and overseas work in urban, rural and other global considerations. They are also equipped to seek the most effective means possible to advance the gospel and integrate biblical truth into other disciplines that this minor might accompany.
