Intercultural Learning Experience | COR337

The intercultural learning experience is part of Covenant’s core curriculum, offering an opportunity for experiential learning using the action-­reflection model as students experience a cross­-cultural environment. Students do preparatory reading, complete field notes throughout the experience, and reflect after the experience through essays and in meetings with a faculty evaluator.

In 2017, Covenant students traveled to 31 countries for study abroad, May term courses, internships and short-term missions trips­. These experiences can provide the experiential basis for the students' work in COR337.

In addition, many Covenant students choose to pursue cross-­cultural experiences closer to home, here in the United States. Students teach English as a second language, work with refugees, tutor, teach art, or coach sports in cross­-cultural settings.

For some students, coming to Covenant is, in itself, a cross­-cultural experience, and those students may choose to attend a semester-­long series of discussion groups, aimed at helping them process and reflect upon their experiences here.


COR337 Catalog Description:

COR337 is designed to allow students to actively participate in a deep and impactful intercultural setting. The purpose is to challenge students to engage with ethnically diverse people who may have different experiences, customs, rituals, religions, or worldviews in life. In a global society, it is imperative to be able and willing to engage with anyone the Lord places in your paths regardless of varying backgrounds. By adding to your cultural engagement, understanding, and communication repertoire, you will be more equipped to enter the global workforce or geographically go wherever the Lord calls you. 


Students should feel free to contact Todd Bridges to discuss their options for meeting this experiential learning requirement.
