Doctor of Applied Intercultural Studies
||The Doctor of Applied Intercultural Studies (DAIS) is a 48-credit program that recognizes the priority of the Holy Spirit’s person and power in accomplishing the mission of God (Missio Dei) and creates an environment in which participants can develop greater discernment of the Spirit’s leading and greater dependence on the Spirit’s power. Two concentrations are offered, Intercultural Studies and Christian Relief and Development.
How does the program work?
Two courses are taken during each two-week session. With the project phase, the degree is completed in approximately four years.
