A Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Studies provides a foundation to understand other cultures and see how God’s word impacts the world. Under the umbrella of Belhaven University’s international studies program, the degree in intercultural studies equips students who want to pursue international missions or community development. Since intercultural studies has fewer course units than the international studies degree, it also makes a good double major for students who want to be prepared to practice any profession overseas.

An intercultural studies major studies anthropology, language acquisition skills, comparative religions and a survey of globalization and culture. The intercultural studies degree program also includes in-depth courses in Bible, theology, urban and tribal ministry. Three hours of cross-cultural experience is required, and this can usually be fulfilled by completing a short term mission trip.
