    A specified time of practical missions work (for both Intercultural Studies and Missions Aviation majors) undertaken entirely in a cultural setting different to that of the student's, emphasizing appropriate ministry, relational, and practical skills as required by the particular opportunity, and performed under the qualified supervision and evaluation of a mature individual working in the field. The course may be taken any time following the sophomore year, and will be concluded with a "debriefing retreat" by select faculty upon return to the Portland area. Advisor's approval required. Prerequisites: IS 101, IS 301, SOC204 (and at least one earned FAA-approved certificates for aviation majors).
