Wildcat Academics on Mission


WAM fully integrates mission and service into academic degree plans. In collaboration with departments across campus, teams work on fully-funded projects with an off-site international ministry that culminates in a three week trip to implement the project. WAM is intended for junior level students, although at times others may participate.

WAM participants receive up to 6 hours of credit: 1–3 hours in their major and 3 hours in Bible.

Departmental applications are circulated in July each year. You can view the programs selected for the ’22–’23 WAM cohort below. If you’d like more information about preparing a WAM application, please reach out to us at the button below.
