Come experience India while earning credit towards your undergraduate degree, and be a light in a land that has far more unreached people groups than any other country in the world!

Located in the New Delhi metro area, the Indian Cultural Studies Initaitive (ICSI) gives students from Assemblies of God universities the opportunity to immerse themselves in cross-cultural life and advance in their academic studies. ICSI students will also have opportunities to teach English, reach out to university students, and minister to children in a region where far less than 1% of the population serves Christ. ICSI prepares students for lifelong, cross-cultural service whether in a business, teaching, or ministry environment. 

While this semester in New Delhi is tailored to meet the international experience requirements of the Intercultural Studies major, any NCU student may apply to participate. Opportunities may be avialbale to remain in India (or another Asian location) for the purpose of completing a summer internship. Internship opportunities vary and may be discussed with the program facilitator after the completion of the application process.
