The Intercultural Studies Program is designed for students focusing on cross-cultural careers in missions, translation, community development, international business, and the teaching of English as a second language.

Effective teaching experience, international cross-cultural ministry experience, and a passion for teaching and spiritual formation within the evangelical tradition is essential. Candidates will need to demonstrate scholarly efforts such as professional presentations, publications, and/or service in their field of study. Effective teaching experience in higher education, evidence of scholarly potential, and a commitment to Christian higher education are vital.
