Belhaven offers new intercultural studies degree

June 5, 2013

Education

Belhaven University continues to reach across the world and into other cultures and now offers a Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Studies.

This new degree is a window of study into other cultures and how missions can impact the world for the good. As an intercultural studies major, students will learn subjects like anthropology, language acquisition skills, comparative religions and surveys of globalization and culture. The other half of study includes in-depth courses in Bible, theology, urban and tribal ministry.

Dr. Kenneth Nehrbass, Assistant Professor of International Studies, said, “The world is becoming more and more cross-cultural. A degree in intercultural studies is designed for students interested in the areas of international missions or community development. Students can chose to add intercultural studies as a double major so they can not only be equipped in their career skills, but able to serve and make a difference anywhere in the world.“

Belhaven’s Intercultural Studies program will be housed in the Dr. Billy Kim International Center; construction on the center will start in 2014. This degree and the recent plans to build the Dr. Billy Kim International Center is a testament of Belhaven’ s commitment to international relations.
