Areas of Emphasis

At Fuller, an emphasis consists of a set of courses grouped around a particular area of interest. By choosing an area of emphasis, you benefit from the rich interdisciplinary resources available in Fuller's three schools - theology, intercultural studies, and psychology. Whether you're called to cross-cultural missions, ministering through social justice outreach, or leading a local body of Christ followers, we invite you to explore emphases that will engage your interests and support your vocation. Emphases can be an exciting way to focus on a particular area of study, but are not required for a program.
