Learn to share the gospel across cultures

Do other cultures fascinate you? The people, customs, and geography? With an associate degree in Intercultural Studies from Moody, you can master how to effectively interact with people no matter their background. You’ll also learn how to communicate the gospel and serve the global church across cultural barriers. Study how world religions impact worldviews and gain a better understanding of the church around the world.

When you take classes in-person on the Chicago campus, you'll study how world religions impact people of other cultures while effectively sharing Christ’s message of salvation.
