economic realities of this strategic and populous

nation. Students have the opportunity to intern at an

international business in China. Students also study

standard Chinese language and apply their skills by

serving in an orphanage or tutoring Chinese students

in English. The program begins and finishes the

semester in Hong Kong and introduces students to

the diversity of China, including Beijing, Shanghai,

Xi’an and Xiamen. This interdisciplinary, cross-

Contemporary Music Center (CMC)

The Contemporary Music Center provides students

understand how God will have them integrate

music, faith and business. The CMC offers three

tracks: Artist, Business, and Technical. The Artist

Track is tailored to students considering careers

as vocalists, musicians, songwriters, recording

artists, performers, and producers. The Business

Track is designed for business, arts management,

marketing, communications, and related majors

interested in possible careers as artist managers,

agents, record company executives, music publishers,

concert promoters, and entertainment industry

entrepreneurs. The Technical Track prepares

students for careers in live sound, concert lighting,

and studio recording. Students within each of the

tracks receive instruction, experience, and a uniquely

Christ-centered perspective on creativity and the

marketplace, while working together to create and

market a recording of original music. Each track

includes coursework, labs, and a practicum. Students

earn 16 semester hours of credit.

Israel Bible EXtension (IBEX)

This 15-week semester abroad program is a high-

quality educational opportunity in Israel for students

who wish to enhance their knowledge of the

Bible’s historical, archaeological, and geographic

background. Classroom lectures are integrated

with extensive field trips. Together, these expose

the student to every corner of the land and to every

period of the history of the people of that land. The

student’s educational experience, as well as his/her

personal maturation, will be significantly enhanced

by the cross-cultural experience that the semester

provides. Students must apply for this program, be

in reasonable physical condition and free of medical

limitations, and must have completed Old Testament

Survey I prior to participation. For information on
