Learning Opportunities | B.A. in Intercultural Studies
Biola’s annual Missions Conference, hosted by the Student Missionary Union, is the oldest and largest student-run missions conference in the United States. Every year since the foundation of this mobilizing movement, Missions Conference has sought to educate, equip and inspire students to embrace their role in the completion of the Great Commission. The event brings dozens of missions agencies to campus, where you can network and learn about career and service opportunities.
Being an intercultural studies major is about more than just classroom learning — it's about connecting your education with real-world settings. As a part of the curriculum, students are required to complete a cross-cultural or overseas learning experience. Students have gone on to study in areas as "close to home" as New York and Hawaii, and as far away as Japan, Turkey and Tunisia, working with organizations like APEX, Wycliffe Bible Translators and Samaritan’s Purse.
