Become a global Christian and live out the Great Commission by cultivating disciples throughout the world. In the Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies, you’ll receive specialized training as you prepare for and engage in Kingdom work. With a solid biblical and theological foundation, and instruction in cultural sensitivity and regional awareness, you’ll be ready for various pathways in missions and/or cross-cultural work of any kind.
M.A. in Intercultural Studies (formerly known as the M.A. in World Missions and Evangelism) graduates are living and ministering in diverse locations across the globe, including Kenya, Thailand, the Middle East, Japan, Ukraine, Paraguay, Haiti and many more.
Students in the M.A. in Intercultural Studies come with varied levels of cross-cultural experience, from short-term missions trips to years in the field. Many are interested in overseas missions, while others desire to work amongst cross-cultural populations in the U.S. This program is a great option if you’re still exploring your calling within the cross-cultural context.
I actually had first entered Gordon-Conwell with the plan to just get a certificate, but I loved it so much that I ended up staying for the whole missions and evangelism degree program! During my time there, I was able to go on several short-term mission trips, received great guidance from the professors and was able to discern through all that that the Lord wanted me to serve him in Latin America and among children.”
