    At Hope, the Intercultural Studies major prepares students to relate to people of diverse cultures, lead them to Christ, and guide them into a relevant life. This program is perfectly suited for students who plan to work in missions or cross-cultural ministry, both nationally or internationally. As diversity is standard in our society, the demand for competent cross-cultural communicators in churches, educational institutions, ministries, non-profit organizations, and businesses is standard. The program includes a strong Biblical foundation and the curriculum provides a foundation that blends theory and experience. The B.A. in Intercultural Studies program is 126 units.

Recent practicums have included ministering in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya for 6 months, serving in a bush hospital in Africa, working with homeless mothers and their children in Los Angeles, assisting Bible translators in South America, and many more. Students may also take advantage of select CCCU Study Abroad or domestic BestSemester opportunities to expand their crosscultural knowledge and abilities. Hope also provides many other opportunities to serve while in school, including serving sack lunches to the homeless with your fellow classmates or traveling with a group to Mexico to build houses for the poor. The opportunity to serve in intercultural ministry is all around.
