Learn More

This includes the bridging of cultures, meaningful communication on faith, church planting, and national leadership development in overseas churches and institutions. Missionary-minded students will deepen their biblical understanding and strengthen their intercultural ministry skills.

Why enter the Accelerated BA/MA in Intercultural Studies program at TIU?
The Accelerated Degree Program is particularly appealing to current students in the Christian Ministries/Intercultural Emphasis or Intercultural Studies minor, as well as to those who are thinking in terms of social issues, MK or expatriate education, tent-making, and micro-enterprise. The complexity of ministry in a world of globalization, resurgent traditional religions, growth of the non-Western church, migration, urbanization, and rapid change demands the highest quality of academic, spiritual, and practical preparation. Trinity’s MA in Intercultural Studies seeks to meet this need in a flexible and integrated format.
