Transform Your Leadership

With the MAGL—Fuller’s shortest degree—you’ll get new insight for your ministry leadership through practical learning in community combined with electives targeted to your needs. Designed for leaders with at least four years of experience in a church, mission, nonprofit, or business role, the MAGL’s primarily online format supports you in your ministry context as you study.

MAGL Icon Learning Community


You will sharpen and encourage one another as a "cohort"—a community of learning—with the guidance of seasoned faculty and support staff. In a safe, peer-oriented environment you’ll find space for the honest dialogue and mutual care that will help you transform your ministry.

MAGL Icon Missional


Studying with others from around the world, you’ll be exposed to global trends and cultural differences—giving you the broadened perspective, equipping, and encouragement to embrace your role as a missional change agent in your own context.

Practical and Experiential


Your ministry will be strengthened through a program that builds on your experience and emphasizes practical application. As you wrestle with theoretical concepts and exchange input with your cohort peers, you’ll apply newfound insight to your leadership role.

MAGL Icon Flexible


Continue in your ministry context as you complete the MAGL, primarily online, with just one two-week trip to Colorado Springs and one to Pasadena. With electives making up 50 percent of your program, you can tailor the degree to your needs through coursework from any of Fuller’s three schools, taken at any campus or online.
