Master of Arts
in Intercultural Studies
The MA in Intercultural Studies program aims to develop effective cross-cultural professionals who are competent communicators with Christ-centered hearts and cultural awareness. You will be equipped as a servant of Christ, able to lead effectively in different spheres of work.
It’s not surprising that an intercultural program is developed by intercultural partners; it takes from best of West and best of East […] together into a coherent partnership that allows for good training for people to be developed interculturally themselves so that they can cross cultures well for the sake of Christ.

Why an MA in Intercultural Studies?
Systematic study for a contextual understanding of cultures in different settings gives us the much needed knowledge and sensitivity to navigate and connect as bridge-builders across cultures in the global village.
Grounded in theory and theology, you'll be equipped with the multicultural competence to work with a diversity of people and be an impactful guiding force in your field.
Develop the discernment and resources to work towards unity within diversity in a world of conflicting and ever-changing cultures. Drawing on the Christian faith, create new cultures wherever you are.
"Intercultural studies gave me the invaluable tools to make sense of my surroundings, to build flourishing and productive cross-cultural relationships, and to help others to do the same."
