Degree Overview

As foreign fields become more difficult to access, medical missions can open doors that traditional paths cannot. In the Medical Missions program, instruction in foundational medical-related subjects is combined with the practical introduction to the framework and processes associated with medical missions. Cross-cultural courses also provide a solid ministry foundation.


Students complete an academic minor in addition to their Bible and liberal arts courses. Finally, students will round out their degree by completing a medical missions internship, preparing them for opportunities in missions.
