Liberty U. doesn't seem to have a missions or missiology major nowadays. The department is called "Global Studies," and it's nothing at all like the missions dept. at any school I know of. The new department head has been in 36 countries, has done missions trips, and those things are admirable. However, she apparently has no career missionary experience. She has an MSW (Master of Social Work) and an MA in Cultural Studies, neither of which prepare you much for missionary work. http://www.liberty.edu/index.cfm?PID=18495&MID=79544 Check out the B. S. degree here: http://www.liberty.edu/index.cfm?PID=28339. In the "Career Opportunities" full time missionary is not even listed. I get that the degree would be good for a "tent-maker" approach, but other than that a church-planting missionary would not be helped much. They also have an MA in a religious studies track here: http://www.liberty.edu/online/masters/christian-ministry/global-studies/. This degree does mention missionary as a career option--along with four others. I really don't get how "Global Studies" will prepare a missionary fully for overseas service. It seems more like "missionary" is just lumped in with other international jobs--just one more job you can choose, rather than a sacred calling. Courses not included in the MA: basic missions, missiology, history of missions, learning a foreign language, cross cultural evangelism, church-planting, cross-cultural adjustment, etc. I really don't understand why they've structured their program this way. I certainly wouldn't recommend a future full-time missionary to go to Liberty.
