M.A. in Intercultural Studies The College at Southeastern offers the Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies (MAIS), a program designed to prepare students for effective service in a cross-cultural setting, especially designed for those with experience in cross-cultural settings. The 54-hour curriculum can be completed in two years of full-time study, and up to 27 hours of the degree may be done through distance learning (online courses and extension courses). The MAIS is available in a general track or with the more specialized concentration in Orality.

Admissions Requirements Students seeking the MAIS must hold a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited school and meet the general requirements for admission to graduate study in the College.

Degree Requirements The Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies requires 54 semester hours.
