Exploring the relationship between ideas learned in the classroom and practical ministry is central to the formational learning process within our Masters and Certificate programs. As a student, you will not only glean from contemporary dialogues occurring in the field of intercultural studies, but we invite you to contribute your personal and diverse experiences to the ongoing conversations. Through regular interaction with fellow classmates, knowledgeable faculty, and academic study, you will find your experience of graduate, intercultural study to be challenging and enriching.
