The program provides graduate level training in three areas: Core Curriculum of Missiology and Intercultural Studies; Bible/Theology; and Electives. Students admitted without the B.A. or its equivalent must have at least 3 years of Bible School training, or 2 years of college equivalency courses. This degree is not a stepping stone to a Ph.D. program and in most cases it is a terminal degree. However, exceptional students may petition for probationary entrance into the Doctor of Intercultural Studies program.

You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
Completion of five years in intercultural ministry and presently in a ministry.
Participation in the Master of Arts program in Missions presumes a significant level of ministry experience and personal maturation.
Applicants usually will not have an accredited B.A. or equivalent degree. CSICS offers other programs for applicants who have the baccalaureate degree.
Three references are required: church or denominational endorsement; personal friend; and ministry colleague (or employer if currently employed outside the missions community).
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
