NOTE: This program will not be admitting any students after the Fall 2019 term.
Our mission for the degree tracks in the Intercultural Studies department is to develop effective cross-cultural professionals who are competent communicators of Christ, sensitive to other cultures, and effective servants.
The program leading to a Master of Arts degree is offered in hybrid format only and requires 36 hours of course work. The full-time hybrid track can be completed in one year (two semesters and one summer). Students who wish to complete a part-time hybrid program can do so in 2-3 years.
Lumina (Hong Kong) M.A. in Intercultural Studies
The MA in Intercultural Studies is also offered in partnership with Lumina College in Hong Kong (pending Higher Learning Commission approval). Students taking the Lumina College program will meet the normal MA in Intercultural Studies program requirements. However, they will take all courses in Hong Kong. The program will consist of one course per semester over a 3 to 5 year span, requiring two full days of class at the Lumina College campus each semester with the rest of the course conducted online. Students in the Lumina College program will not be able to take courses at Wheaton without department approval. For further information, browse to http://lumina.org.hk/?a=doc&id=190.
