SAGU renames World Ministries program to Intercultural StudiesWaxahachie, Texas – August 16, 2012 – Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) changed the name of the World Ministries program to Intercultural Studies this summer.

The change was approved by the President's Cabinet in May and is reflected in the new undergraduate and graduate catalogs. The undergraduate degree is now a Bachelor of Science in Intercultural Studies. The graduate degree is now a Master of Arts of Theological Studies in Intercultural Studies.

Intercultural Studies Director Chad Germany explains that the core content of the degree remains unchanged. "Missions is in SAGU's DNA. We remain deeply committed to the Great Commission, church planting, raising up indigenous churches and preparing workers who will serve on foreign mission fields," Germany said.

Germany further explained that the name change was necessary to use terminology that appeals to future students, and to make the degree more valuable in the secular marketplace.

Graduates will benefit from the name change. A bachelor's or master's degree in Intercultural Studies provides a stronger academic impression on a resume for alumni who work professionally while preparing for the mission field or who later seek a profession in a related field.

SAGU's continued emphasis on missions is illustrated by Mission TEN. The Mission TEN effort has now completed three years of a 10-year goal to reach every country of the world and every Chinese and Indian state by the year 2020. To date, SAGU has sent more than 350 workers to nearly 60 countries.

Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) is a private, Christian university located 30 minutes south of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex in Waxahachie, Texas. The university was established in 1927, and now offers more than 60 associate, bachelor’s or master’s degrees on campus or online. More information is available at www.sagu.edu or by calling 1-888-YES-SAGU.
