Essential for intercultural effectiveness.
OKWU’s Global Studies program is designed for training students who have been called to serve within an intercultural context – internationally or domestically. The challenges of serving internationally have never been more robust, and there are many opportunities to serve domestically across cultural divides. Global Studies students at OKWU receive quality instruction regarding the attitudes, knowledge, and skills that are paramount for living and ministering interculturally in restricted-access nations. In light of the persecution and suffering of so many believers in the world, OKWU students become thoroughly grounded in their theology of suffering within the context of advocating for international human rights.
At OKWU, the faculty of the School of Ministry and Christian Thought are fully committed to fulfilling the Great Commission in an ever-changing and challenging global context. Global Studies students will learn from faculty with decades of intercultural experience who are experts in their fields of missiology, theology, descriptive linguistics, and ethnology.
