Senior Synthesis

ICS 497
Intercultural Studies & Languages

This course is a culminating learning experience for the advanced intercultural student which concludes their ICS studies with a synthesis project that applies anthropological, qualitative, or library research to their desired area. Original research from their cross cultural internship may be supplemented by a literature review focusing on: history, politics, religion, worldview, economics, social needs, and current ministry approaches and strategies, among their chosen ethnicity or people group. This class takes the form of individualized, directed research projects that are professionally and publically presented to prepare the student both for ongoing educational endeavors as well as life within a specific field, or type of cross cultural ministry.
