CUSTOMIZE YOUR MDIV

Theological education is necessarily a venture in the world of interdisciplinarity. The various areas of study within Fuller’s MDiv program provide opportunities for students to tailor this interdisciplinary voyage to suit their particular interests—in my case, Christian ethics—making the journey all the more valuable.

COLBY TRUESDELL, MDIV STUDENT

Fuller, through the Brehm Center, was one of five schools in the world that offered a focus oo Worship, Theology, and the Arts in the way I was looking for it. Through this, I was able to study the arts as a broad spectrum and in their interaction with theoretical and practical theology.

In our Youth, Family, and Culture courses, for example, you’ll learn from faculty who are leading and shaping the future of youth ministry—respected authors, speakers, researchers, and ministers who will challenge your thinking and practice. Or select from a number of other areas of study, including these:
