Learn in Greenville. See the World.
Intercultural Studies Program
Become equipped for your God-given calling to serve others around the world.
Reach the Nations
From the coziest hometown to the furthest corner of the world, God loves all people. You know this, and you want to spend your life displaying God’s heart for all nations.
Prepare to enter one of many intercultural professions. Missionary and mission agency worker, of course. But also, ESL teacher, humanitarian/social worker, pastor, Bible translator, and more.
Experience Learning Across Cultural Divides
International Service Project
Immerse yourself in a one-month-long international service project. Prepare for cross-cultural leadership. Gain hands-on work experience in other cultures. Discover where God is calling you to serve. All under the guidance of university personnel and qualified field missionaries.
Global Mission Trips
NGU partners with the Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership to provide a variety of mission trips around the world. Explore ministry opportunities. Engage other cultures. Experience God’s heart for the nations. There’s no better way to connect your in-class studies with your real-world calling.
You don’t have to travel to the ends of the earth to see how God is mobilizing his church. While at NGU, we’ll help you secure meaningful internships within churches, mission agencies, and field-based mission sites. Experience first-hand how God uses his people, locally and globally, to accomplish his purpose.
Ministry Beside Experienced & Faithful Disciplers
A God-Honoring Approach to Intercultural Studies
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
