I'd like to learn more about pursuing a ThM in Intercultural Studies at Fuller






PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Master of Theology in Intercultural Studies (ThM ICS) degree, offered through Fuller's Center for Missiological Research (CMR), equips pastors, mission and denominational leaders to meet the challenge of ministering in an increasingly complex, multiethnic, multinational world. The ThM in Intercultural Studies provides students, who have already earned the Master of Divinity degree (or its educational equivalent), with the missiological framework for research and reflection by building on the biblical, theological, and historical studies gained through their previous work. The program enables practitioners to pursue concentrated coursework in one area of missiological study, culminating in a reflective and research-based thesis.

Graduates from the ThM in Intercultural Studies should:

  • demonstrate the ability to effectively frame and pursue research in intercultural studies
  • demonstrate critical capacity in one discipline associated with the research area
  • demonstrate the ability to think critically about missiology as a discipline
