AGTS News: AGTS Announces New Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies

The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS) has been approved to offer a Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies. This degree's focus will be on equipping missiologists for research, teaching and missional praxis in an increasingly complex multicultural world. It will also give a "credible voice" to scholar practitioners, missionaries and national leaders before the academy and the church. President Byron D. Klaus states, "This program will contribute to the discipline of intercultural studies by enriching research, teaching and the practice of those involved in the field".

The Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies will begin July 2009. For more information about the program, contact Dr. DeLonn Rance or Dr. Warren Newberry at 1-800-467-AGTS or send an e-mail to

The newly approved Ph.D. is the third doctoral degree offered by AGTS. The Doctor of Ministry (D.MIn.) was inaugurated in 1997 and the Doctor if Missiology (D.Miss.) in 2007. The Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies offered at AGTS is the first independently offered Ph.D. by an Assemblies of God education institution globally.

AGTS is accredited regionally by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association. Additionally, AGTS is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.
