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 a cross-cultural practicum (optional) 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), and is typically completed in 2 years of full-time study (12 units per quarter). 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.

Beginning Fall 2017, as reflected in the updated degree outline below, the MAICS will have a stronger focus on missiology and more flexibility in both electives and the new option to earn the degree fully online. Click here to see the previous degree outline.

Integrative - 8 Units (IS500 Required; Choose one additional course)

Interpreting - 4 Units (Choose one of the following)

Missiology - 28 Units

Electives - 40 Units
