About

Preparation for International Studies - Missions at Houghton College matches the diversity of 21st-century missions practice. The intercultural studies major with a missions concentration prepares you to interact with the culture and gain a solid foundation in missions studies.

Overview

Houghton College has a long tradition of our students going on to serve God’s Kingdom in missions. From the early 1900s until today, our alumni are all around the world sharing Christ’s love in diverse ministries including teaching the Bible, development, evangelism and medical work.

Given that there is not one set type of missions work, Houghton offers a variety of programs of study that prepare you for this service. At the core stands Houghton’s integration of faith into whatever major one takes. The breadth of liberal arts opens knowledge and skills appropriate for today’s world. From the intercultural studies base of Global Issues, Cultural Anthropology, Intercultural Competencies and other core courses, the missions concentration embraces historical, biblical, theological and practical studies along with field experience.

Along with the required classes in Bible and theology, you will also have opportunities to grow spiritually and begin to reach out to others while a student. This can be done in many ways from interacting with local children who need a big brother/big sister to meeting refugees in Buffalo who need a friend to teach them English. You can even work right in town with international high school students at Houghton Academy.

Additionally, there are opportunities to learn practically and spiritually through the student group Global Christian Fellowship, interaction with missionaries in residence, participating in New Vision Week - a multiple day focus on missions when mission organizations have reps on campus - and more.
