The Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Studies (BAICS) at Texas Baptist College (TBC) aims to prepare its graduates for effective Kingdom ministry all over the world. Specifically, this degree trains TBC graduates to successfully traverse nations’ cultural and religious borders for effective Christian witness in ministry or the international marketplace. Students study topics such as ethnography, worldview, cross-cultural communication, cultural anthropology, and world religions. They further learn the necessary skills to speak a foreign language of their choice and acquire core business knowledge. After approximately two years into the degree, students travel abroad for approximately five months to a selected ministry assignment where an experienced field supervisor oversees the internship and the above-mentioned cross-cultural learning can be applied.
