BA, Intercultural Studies and Counseling Psychology

The double major programs at Spurgeon College are divided into three distinct sections. Students take classes in the General Education component, the Christian component, and then in the Professional component.

The Intercultural Studies major teaches students how to engage people from other lifestyles, worldviews, and cultures with the gospel of Jesus. The Counseling Psychology Major is designed particularly for those who intend to go into the field of Christian Counseling. This major will prepare the student to enter the Master of Arts in Counseling (MACO) degree program.
