Description:A degree in Intercultural Studies at Columbia combines solid academic study with service-based experience under a mentor. Jesus modeled this practice-orientated approach to learning when he trained his disciples (see Luke 10:1-23). The ICS internship is a critical component of the program where students experience life in another context to better understand intercultural dynamics for the purpose of Christian witness and service. This degree is holistic and integrative and will equip you to better understand and interpret the Bible, appreciate and serve in new cultures, understand the complexities of church ministry and community development, and explore your calling. Students graduating with an Intercultural Studies degree have gone on to serve crossculturally in a variety of contexts including mission organizations, non-profit agencies, peace and justice advocacy, and urban and refugee ministry. Students can also pursue a graduate degree in their focused area of interest.
