A recent publication by the Association of Theological Schools ranked the top 25 institutions by the number of PhDs awarded who are now teaching at ATS schools. We’re pleased to share that Fuller ranked near the top; with 99 Fuller PhDs teaching at ATS institutions, the seminary came in sixth, above Duke, Yale, and other prestigious schools.
“One of the key barometers of a PhD program’s success is the placement of its graduates, so there’s much to celebrate here,” says School of Theology Dean Joel Green. “Fuller’s position on this list speaks to our program’s reputation, and signals our ongoing influence in the world of theological education.”
The Association of Theological Schools exists to “promote the improvement and enhancement of theological schools to the benefit of communities of faith and the broader public.” Recognized as an accrediting body by the US Department of Education, the ATS monitors and accredits the vast majority of seminaries and theological graduate schools in the United States. A ranking by such a reputable education body is a reliable marker of a school’s health and prestige among its peers.
