Intercultural Studies Concentration – Bachelor of Arts in Ministry

The Intercultural Studies concentration prepares students to lead and serve people from a variety of cultures through exposure to many different cultures, linguistics, and multiple religions. The focus of this major is to properly prepare students for serving the needs of others around the world.

Courses for this program are available on-campus and online.

While every degree program does allow for “some” customization to meet your own specific educational goals, there are several fixed components that are a part of every degree.  Each degree program includes the following: general education core, a Biblical studies component, essential core courses for the second major and required course for the chosen concentration.

“John Wesley and the special people that belong to John Wesley blessed my life and lovingly and patiently guided me through every class and every semester. The experiences that I had there have helped me, and the professors’ words still “ring” in my ears so many years later. Nothing beats a Christian education!” Byron Shore – Missionary to Brazil
