Future Cross-cultural Programs

Future Programs

The semester program is the recommended cross-cultural option. Each semester program includes 15 semester hours of credit taken as five (3 SH) courses. The experience integrates course content through analysis and experiential learning. Nine hours of the semester program meet the cross-cultural requirements in the Core Curriculum. This includes the core experiential course (Cross-Cultural Social Science” 3 SH), and six additional hours of cross-cultural designates. A semester cross-cultural also includes one faith course meeting the “Christian Identity and Witness” requirement. The remaining courses may include language, history and culture, or an area of faculty expertise.

Summer seminars provide exposure to cross-cultural contexts for 3-6 weeks. A three-week experience comprises the core cross-cultural course while six-week seminars include a second 3 SH course.  The Washington Community Scholars’ Center offers fall, spring and summer terms.  You can read more about our future programs below.
