BA, Intercultural Studies & Humanities

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 Humanities major will build sound scholarship with an emphasis in the liberal arts, as well as study economic and political factors that affect society.
