Intercultural Studies


The Intercultural Studies program at TWU explores the richness of various cultures and beliefs, while examining Christian responses to them.

As an Intercultural Studies major at Trinity Western University, you will explore the richness of various cultures and beliefs and examine Christian responses to them. With three streams to choose from, you can tailor your degree to your passions. All three streams have a strong interdisciplinary approach that leads to a broad understanding of intercultural issues, and prepares you for a job upon graduation. As a part of the program, our students participate in a cross-cultural practicum, which enables them to apply principles and ideas learned in coursework. Many students also choose to add a certificate in Teaching English as a Second or Other Language (TESOL) to their Intercultural degree.
