As a Bible translator, I appreciated not only the ease at which I was able to combine biblical, Greek, intercultural studies, and linguistics classes, but also the close working relationship UNW has with SIL-UND, which made for a smooth, jump-started transition into my career with Wycliffe Bible Translators.
