MAICS DEGREE OUTLINE
The MA in Intercultural Studies forms students for informed missional engagement in any context, local or global. It is a biblically grounded program with practices, courses, and small groups that nurture students’ holistic formation, and includes an intercultural practicum that offers an opportunity for students to integrate and practically apply their studies.
The degree requires a total of 80 quarter units (one class is 4 quarter units). At a full-time pace, the MAICS can be completed in as little as 2 years. At a part-time pace, the program can be completed in 2.5–5 years. Please note, Fuller’s 80-quarter-unit MAICS program is equivalent to a 56 semester credit program at other institutions. Both will take the same amount of time and effort to complete.
As reflected in the updated degree outline below, the MAICS has a stronger focus on missiology and offers many electives, as well as concentrations and cohort opportunities, for students to customize their MAICS program to their unique calling. This degree is offered fully online, allowing for a global learning community that enhances each student’s education. View the pre-Fall 2022 degree outline.
