The Master of Arts degree in intercultural studies, missions, applied linguistics and TESOL.

To help students, the University has available a number of useful resources to assist in making the decision: academic advisors, careers counselors, First-Year Seminar classes conducted during the first semester of attendance, curriculum charts detailing the academic requirements for each program, and various Aiers and brochures produced by each department. The task of selecting a major (and often a minor or other complimen­ tary specializations) becomes one of crystallizing ideas on the basis of experiences in specific courses, discussions with other students, staff and faculty. Faculty advising is a service offered to students; however each student is responsible for choosing courses and fulfill­ ing graduation requirements. Students must plan freshman or sophomore programs which will permit them to enter or take advanced courses in fields they may want to pursue. They should be sure to begin or complete require­ ments such as mathematics, chemistry or a foreign language early in their academic careers. Students anticipating graduate or profes­ sional study should exercise special care in planning undergradu­ ate programs and seek faculty counseling in the field of interest. Advance examination of the possibilities of graduate or professional study will be helpful to students who have clear educational and vocational objectives.

UNDECLARED MAJORS Students who are uncertain about their primary educational or voca­ tional goals may enroll as undeclared majors. However, they should consult an advisor in the Academic Advising Office prior to registra­ tion each semester. While most undeclared students will enroll in primarily general education and Biblical Studies requirements, many general education requirements are "major specific" and should be chosen with possible majors in mind. A student should not plan to stay "undeclared" for more than three semesters. PLANNING A MAJOR PROGRAM When students have selected a major field, they should study all the requirements that are specified in this catalog under their chosen degree program. They should make a tentative semester by semester plan for completing the requirement including prerequisites and discuss this plan with an advisor in the major. In addition to courses in the major department, related cou rses in other fields and supporting courses in basic skills may also be required. These should be included in the tentative semester by semester plan. Some departments require an application to the department and acceptance; and or placement tests prior to admission to classes. The times and places for the tests are determined by the department. Students should contact departments for testing times.
