The IS Degree Program has seven concentration options designed to build professional competence in addition to a student’s Intercultural and Biblical studies. Since the edge is generally completed during the second semester of the sophomore year (later for transfers), students have up to two years to focus the remainder of their studies.
The International Community Development Concentration is offered through a cooperative agreement with the Hunger Education and Resource Training (HEART) Institute. The training includes the following courses taken on site during a semester spent at the HEART in Lake Wales, Florida.
The Foreign Language Concentration allows students to pursue a significant level of language in either ancient Greek or Hebrew or one of the modern languages such as Spanish, French, or German. Students complete introductory courses here in Omaha and further their studies through a one or two semester study abroad experience while studying at a local language institute or university. Greek or Hebrew students are not required to study abroad, although participation in one of the Israel trips is highly encouraged.
The Justice and Reconciliation Concentration is designed to give students a first-hand experience of domestic, Christian community development as conducted in the context of urban realities in partnership with the John M. Perkins Foundation for Reconciliation and Development. Emphasis is placed upon the study of topics such as oppression, poverty, race, justice, community development and reconciliation. Students conduct this concentration during the Spring semester at Foundation’s Jackson, MS headquarters.
The English Language Learner Concentration (ELL) is offered through a combination of resident courses in Omaha and on-line courses accomplished at the student’s particular EDGE site.
The Psychology Concentration is designed to help students complete many of the pre-requisites for entrance into a graduate psychology program or social work. Students who pursue this concentration are endeavoring to work in a cross-cultural, non-profit mental health environment.
The Non-profit Business Administration Concentration is designed to give students a basic foundation of intercultural issues found in business settings. This concentration is designed to help prepare students who desire to serve and live out their faith in an intercultural, non-profit context. Students who choose this concentration will spend six weeks in China working with Grace University’s BAMTAM initiative.
