Learn in Community with a Biblical Justice Cohort
Study with students who share your passion with Fuller’s new Biblical Justice Cohort beginning Fall 2019 on the Pasadena campus. Led by Tommy Givens, assistant professor of New Testament, this tight-knit cohort will move together through a thoughtfully crafted sequence of courses focusing on biblical justice. Cohorts benefit from dedicated vocational resources, academic support, and opportunities for spiritual growth. Those eligible to apply for this limited cohort are on-campus Pasadena students admitted to the Master of Divinity (MDiv), MA in Theology (MAT), MA in Theology and Ministry (MATM), or MA in Intercultural Studies (MAIS) program, and beginning their studies in the Fall 2019 quarter. Participation in this cohort requires enrollment in two courses per quarter (except Summer 2020) for the first two years of study.
Immerse yourself in the study of justice through a deeply biblical lens with classes like Jesus, the Church, and Violence, The Theology and Ethics of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Organizing Urban Communities for Transformation. Study alongside students with a similar passion, delving into the real-world implications of loving one’s neighbor while at the same time pursuing spiritual and personal formation.
