1 DESCRIPTION The Master of Arts in Intercultural and Urban Studies degree is a 60-hour* program designed to equip maturing followers of Christ serving in various cultural and urban contexts to relate with people in Christlike ways, to learn from them, and to teach and embody the truth of God s Word for the sake of making disciples around the world. GOALS The program seeks to attain three types of outcomes in the life of the student: academic, professional, and relational. ACADEMIC Based on careful study of Scripture and in dialog with published research and current practitioners, the student will develop a biblical worldview centered in Jesus Christ and informed by the global church. This will shape the student s theology of intercultural ministry that addresses issues that arise from specific contexts of intercultural and urban ministry. PROFESSIONAL Taking the position of a learner, the student will develop advanced skills to identify specific intercultural and urban issues, analyze them within a biblical framework, and formulate ministry strategies in partnership with a network of researchers and practitioners within a local context of ministry. The student will practice what is being learned through internships, living interculturally in Chicago, or blending coursework with ministry by alternately spending time on campus and in the field. RELATIONAL The program intends as an outcome that the student embraces the life of a disciple of Christ (Luke 14:25 35), being empowered by the Holy Spirit to produce the fruit of the Spirit and the attributes recorded in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. Special attention will be given to cultivating a heart of compassion as recorded in Matthew 9:13, particularly toward those who are poor. *Advanced standing, validation, and transfer credit are available; see chart on page
