Dual Degree Program

Bob Garrett, Ph.D., M.A. in Global Leadership Program Director
Carolyn Spain, Ed.D., M.A. in Teaching Program Director

The 21st century affords exciting opportunities for global servant leadership in a variety of educational institutions around the world.  This dual degree program is designed for students who want to develop academic expertise in a given discipline with which they can teach in overseas universities or other international academic programs, institutions, and settings.  At the same time students can develop skill sets to help them with the complex dynamics needed to serve others by adding value to their lives, sharing the gospel as a witness in diverse cultural contexts by learning to adjust to cross-cultural environments, and making and sustaining intercultural relationships.
