Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The theology programs at Fuller are fantastic, with world class professors and a nurturing environment. I have strong relationships with faculty in the SOT and SIS departments (Theology and International Studies). However, my PhD is in psychology, and unfortunately the SOP (school of psychology) can be a very toxic and anti-student environment. After talking with graduates from previous years (stretching back more than a decade), it seems like this is a systemic problem. Those seeking a theological/psychological education should consider doing an MA in theology and pursuing a PhD in psychology elsewhere.

I found Fuller to be an amazing place for my growth and learning, both personally and educationally. I made lifetime friends as well as received a valuable education in a field I'm passionate about.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2019

Fuller Seminary has outstanding degree programs and professors. The balance between teaching, class discussions, and home learning makes the rigorous courses approachable and enjoyable. I'm participating in a hybrid graduate degree which is giving me the ability to work full time while earning my Masters. The professors are understanding and accommodating to the working student while still setting high academic standards.

Degree: Ministry
Graduation Year: 2018

Fuller is a wonderful school with a great reputation. I love the emphasis on the arts and theology through the Brehm Center. I'm thrilled to be getting a Master's of Theology and Ministry on-line, thousands of miles away. It's something I never thought I'd be able to do.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2020

Fuller Theological Seminary is an outstanding institution full of incredible people. The Master of Divinity program prepares students for vocational ministry and allows them to grow deeper into their faith and calling. This is the degree program for individuals who feel called to ministry and want to gain the knowledge and experience they need to be fully equipped to serve in the local church.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2011

Excellent faculty to student ratio. MFT faculty is amazing and very accessible and hands on in teaching. Small cohort of students that ends up being more like a family. Many opportunities to grow and learn. Excellent preparation for a career in MFT!

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2016

I love the flexibility of my program. I can take courses on what I know will help me to have the most success in my chosen career field. I have easy access to academic advisors whom are very knowledgable in the programs and successful pathways through each program. I do feel the program could have more credits that would give me a more well rounded education. I would like to be challenged more with taking having to take harder courses such as Intoductory Greek or possibly another biblical language. Overall, I feel Fuller Theological Seminary offers both graduates and undergardutes the oppportunity to be successful in their chosen career. While attending they will also be exposed to a community of educators and faculity who's intention is to produce the next generation of spiritual leaders.
