Future Intercultural Programs

Future Programs

Due to pandemic restrictions, travel plans for all future seminars are subject to change. With a commitment to the health and safety of students and faculty, and to the communities that host our groups, we continue to monitor conditions and restrictions for travel. Please check for updates on programs of interest as you make decisions for upcoming terms.

The semester program is the recommended intercultural study 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 intercultural requirements in the Core Curriculum. This includes the core experiential course (Intercultural Social Science 3 SH), and six additional hours of intercultural designates. A semester intercultural 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 another cultural context for 3-6 weeks. A three-week experience comprises the core intercultural social science course, while six-week seminars include a second 3 SH course.  The Washington Community Scholars’ Center offers fall, spring and summer terms. WCSC coursework meets all core intercultural requirements except foreign language.
