An exploration of the major world religions will be undertaken, along with a comparison of their teachings with the teachings of orthodox Christianity. Religions such as Animism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam will be analyzed for the purpose of determining how best to reach adherents of these faiths with the gospel. 

The internship is a semester-long experience required of all Intercultural Studies (ICS) majors, and its intention is to give those students an opportunity to observe and put into practice the concepts and theories that they have been studying in the classroom. This experience, usually spanning between 10 to 12 weeks, will take place in a cross-cultural setting under the supervision of a competent and experienced mentor, generally a missionary with a number of years of fruitful service in a cross-cultural situation. The student will receive 12 hours of academic credit upon successful completion of the internship.
