Liberty University Online Announces Intercultural Studies Minor

September 28, 2010  | 

Liberty University Online is pleased to offer a minor in Intercultural Studies. In addition to more than 45 degree programs – from Associate to doctoral – and 100 areas of specialization, students can choose one of 10 minors to include in their program of study.

A minor in Intercultural Studies from Liberty University Online teaches students the fundamentals of modern missions and trains them not only to serve on the mission field, but also how to mobilize others to serve in missions.

"The minor in Intercultural Studies provides all the fundamental background knowledge for participating in global ministries or facilitating a church mission’s ministry," said Dr. Don Fanning, Chairman of the Intercultural Studies Department at Liberty. "These courses include a general introduction to world missions, trends and issues, theology and history of missions, and cultural anthropology for intercultural ministries."

To meet program requirements, students must complete 15 credit hours in the minor, including an Introduction to Missions and Cultural Anthropology course.
