Our global learning centers bring Biola's quality cross­-cultural education, training and mentoring to Christian workers on the field, enabling students from different organizations to learn from the professor and each other as they reflect on their ministries. These centers allow global Christians, who meet Biola’s admissions standards for international students, to access graduate studies. Global learning centers are available in the following locations:
Currently, select courses for several graduate degree programs are offered in short, one-week class sessions in January. Classroom interactions for the Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies (M.A. ICS), Doctor of Intercultural Studies (DIS), and our two Ph.D. programs in Intercultural Education or Intercultural Studies can be completed in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Following these sessions, students will complete their coursework online using Biola's portal, Canvas, from La Mirada.
