How is the Intercultural Studies major different from the International Studies major?
Requires 10 less hours, only a shorter summer experience abroad, and more biblical courses that focus on people and proclamation.

The intercultural studies major is for students who plan to be involved in international missions or to work in community development. Their program involves an integration of the theology of missions and cross-cultural skills. As a Christian liberal arts university, Belhaven emphasizes the importance of Christian values and ethics.

In addition to the general education courses required for graduation (approximately 56 hours), the bachelor of arts in intercultural studies requires 42 hours to include: BIB 210, 360, 408, 411, 412, 415, and 445; plus IST 201, 202, 301, 302, 303, 402 and 403."
