Experience Whole-Life Formation with the MDiv Cohort
Fuller’s new MDiv Fall 2020 Cohort is designed for students who desire comprehensive theological training in a community setting. Starting this fall, a select group of students admitted to the MDiv Cohort will study on the Pasadena campus and be led by Daniel Lee, assistant professor of theology and Asian American ministry.
MDiv Cohort students move together through a thoughtfully crafted sequence of courses that include biblical studies and ministry preparation, while also incorporating psychological integration. Further, through vocation formation groups in Fall 2020 and quarterly cohort meetings, the cohort itself will foster a tight-knit and enriching community to share the seminary experience together. Optional co-curricular events and activities such as informal events with various faculty members sharing their faith and life, local church visits, or group hikes will all contribute toward an experience of whole life formation.
Additional benefits of joining the MDiv cohort include guaranteed access to courses that are part of the 2-year curricular map, dedicated cohort advisors, career planning support.
To be eligible for this new cohort experience, you must apply to the Master of Divinity (MDiv) program on the Pasadena campus, and be accepted to begin your studies at the Pasadena campus in the Fall 2020 Quarter.
