An Opportunity for Spiritual, Academic, and Vocational Formation
The School of Intercultural Studies cohort program provides space for masters students to create community with others in their degree program. Each cohort meets weekly alongside the guidance of a mentor, and is uniquely shaped by its members. Our hope is that cohorts help facilitate spiritual growth and vocational discernment within the context of community.
Beyond individual growth, cohorts allow for mutual cross-cultural learning as participants develop relationships with a diverse group of individuals. We invite you to participate in this unique opportunity for growth, as many students claim it a highlight of their experience at Fuller!
“What I gained and continue to gain is a sense of belonging to family, and friendships characterized by depth, sincerity and commitment to each other.”

SIS Graduate Union
A Place to Connect with SIS Students and the Fuller Community
The School of Intercultural Studies Graduate Union (SISGU) is a branch of Fuller’s All Seminary Council, a student-run organization with the goal of connecting students to each other and community. All SIS students are invited to participate in events ranging from day trips to the beach, to pot lucks and dinners, to times of prayer for our community and world. Each year two SIS students are elected to lead the SISGU.
The SISGU also connects SIS students to the larger Fuller community. The All Seminary Council has on-going events for special interest committees on topics like peace and justice, missions, women’s concerns and the arts. Yearly events have included a pancake breakfast during finals week, missions fair, arts festival, and live concerts.
Living in Los Angeles
A Crosscultural Context in which we Study and Serve
The unique location of Fuller in the crosscultural metropolis of Los Angeles allows you to combine academic reflection with praxis. An urban environment compels students to critically engage with issues like immigration, multicultural churches, homelessness, trafficking and reconciliation.
The School of Intercultural Studies has relationships with many local ministries with whom students may choose to work, volunteer, or complete their practicum requirements.
