The IS Degree Program has six 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.


International Community Development

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.

Foreign Language

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 summer, 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 GU’s Israel trips is highly encouraged.

Teaching English Language Learners

The English Language Learner Concentration (ELL) is offered through the Education department at Grace University. The student will finish with a certificate of ELL training that will allow them to pursue a career of teaching English to adults in foreign countries.

Church-Based Ministry

This concentration will prepare students to pursue a cross-cultural ministry in a church context. The concentration will focus on a combination of children, youth and adult ministries with an emphasis on discipleship and leadership development.


The Psychology Concentration is designed to help students complete many of the pre-requisites for entrance into a graduate psychology program. Students who pursue this concentration are endeavoring to work in a cross-cultural, non-profit mental health environment.

Business Administration (Non-profit)

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 GU’s JAM (Job as Missions) initiative.
