Associate Program Overview

Our Associate of Arts in Intercultural Ministry Degree curriculum follows the same basic format as the first year of the bachelor’s degree. As an Associate degree student you would focus on biblical and theological studies, personal spiritual development, and take courses in missions and ministry.

You would also participate in an 8-12 week intercultural practicum during the fall of your second year. This trip are designed to give you an introduction to life and work on the mission field. You will then spend your 4th and final term back on campus in Bloomington.
