Do you want to prepare for the challenge of today's multicultural world? Do you want to follow God's leading to make a difference in an intercultural setting around the globe or in the United States?  If so, the intercultural studies major at Houghton College is for you! The intercultural studies major prepares you to join Houghton graduates serving around the world in fields such as missions, Bible translation, community and international development, health services, education, relief work, refugee services and other service-oriented vocations in diverse cultural contexts.
