Intercultural Studies Undergraduate Degree Program at MidAmerica Nazarene University.
MidAmerica Nazarene University
Intercultural Studies lays the foundation to share God’s love with those who are different from you—across ethnic, language and national barriers.

The Facts

Intercultural Studies prepares you for overseas missions, ministry to immigrant groups or underrepresented populations in a domestic setting, or work within Christian organizations that respond to needs across cultural lines.

You will participate in two immersion experiences during your time at MNU: an intercultural experience in an overseas or domestic multi-cultural setting, and a practical study in a local church or Christian organization. Students with membership in the Church of the Nazarene may

also participate in the Ministerial Student Scholarship program (MSSP), which requires field service each semester.

There are many scholarship opportunities for Intercultural Studies majors. In fact, all freshmen receive a $2500 scholarship once they pass the Introduction to Ministry course. We also have a separate Ministry Student Scholarship Program as well as General Ministry Scholarships ranging from $1000-$3000 per year for sophomores, juniors and seniors.

"MNU’s Intercultural Studies program trained me to think more Christlike, to view the world through a global-citizen framework, and to fruitfully and faithfully contextualize the ‘good news’ to the particular needs and cultures of all people groups."
