CLASS FORMATS

Fuller Seminary offers classes in a ten-week quarter system.

STANDARD 10-WEEK CLASS

The class will be taught by the professor in a campus classroom location and meet once or twice per week as a ten-week class.

ONLINE CLASS

The class will be taught by the professor in Canvas as a ten-week class. Regular student participation and interaction is required.

HYBRID CLASS

The class will be taught by the professor in Canvas starting the first week of the quarter with weekly interactive assignments. The class will then meet as an intensive on a campus later in the quarter and will continue in Canvas for the duration of the term.* 

HYBRID PLUS ("HYBRID+") CLASSES

Two hybrid classes are scheduled together so that the intensive part (required for hybrids) is held on the same campus in the same week. These classes will be scheduled on a regular rotation with the same pairing of classes. There are a total of six Hybrid+ classes.

"FULLER LIVE" CLASS

The class will be taught by the professor in a campus classroom location, along with one or more sections at other campuses, by live, interactive audio/video link.

INTENSIVE CLASS

The class will be taught by the professor in a classroom location in a condensed time period of one week, two weeks,  or five weeks. Language intensives are ten-week classes with increased hours and units (Greek: 12 units; Hebrew: 8 units).*

IMMERSION CLASS

The class will be taught by the professor in a designated location that is not on a main campus, and the class may involve international travel. Immersion classes are designed to challenge students to draw from the cultural surroundings of the course location as well as course lectures for a uniquely comprehensive educational experience. Immersion classes typically follow an intensive format.

WEEKEND CLASS

The class will be taught by the professor in a classroom location in a condensed time period over several weekends.

 

*Only one 1-week intensive, 2-week intensive, or hybrid intensive portion may be taken during any 1-week or 2-week period.
