Hybrid Plus "Hybrid+" Course Options

You can now earn the MATM or MAICS degree while remaining in your context. Your study can be primarily online, with just three one-week sessions at a Fuller campus. To take maximum advantage of your online options, you would follow this plan:

  • Earn 72 units through online courses.
  • Earn 24 units through six "Hybrid Plus" courses.

Each Hybrid+ Course consists of nine weeks of online study plus one week of face-to-face study at a campus. When you come to a campus for that face-to-face requirement, you will take two courses during your one-week stay.

With this plan, you can complete the MATM or MAICS in three years. You may schedule your Hybrid+ classes according to your needs: Take them all in one year, or one each year, or another combination during the quarters that work best for you. Hybrid+ courses will be offered in rotation at the following campuses: Pasadena, Colorado Springs, Houston, Irvine, Menlo Park, Phoenix, and Seattle.

Hybrid+ Courses

The following combination of courses are scheduled to be offered in the Hybrid+ format:

  • CH504 Modern Church History/FS510 Human Development in Context
  • NT500 New Testament Introduction/SP500 Spiritual Traditions and Practices
  • ET501 Christian Ethics/MC500 Church and Mission in Global Context

Please reference the Hybrid+ schedule and information page to plan for upcoming Hybrid+ courses.
