Fuller Theological Seminary's innovative, fully accredited distance
learning master's-level courses give women and men the opportunity to
study at any time, from anywhere in the world, providing students with
options that fit their individual schedules and learning styles.
Distance Learning at Fuller includes two different kinds of delivery:
Fuller Online and Individualized Distance Learning. Each option offers
convenience and flexibility, as well as the quality and depth of
learning that is a part of every Fuller Seminary class.
Master of Arts in Global Leadership (MAGL) can be earned almost
entirely online. This degree program allows existing leaders in
ministry, mission and parachurch organizations to remain in their
leadership positions while they learn. The unique cohort design creates
learning communities of pastors and other Christian leaders who learn to
lead transformationally and missionally engage our world.
Up to one-half (48 units) of the MA in Intercultural Studies can be earned through Distance Learning.
Certificate in Christian Studies from the School of Theology or School
of Intercultural Studies can be earned entirely through Distance
Learning, with any combination of Fuller Online and Individualized
Distance Learning classes. The Certificate in Anglican Communion Studies
is available entirely online.
In the School of Theology, students
in the MA in Theology, MA in Theology and Ministry, and MA in Christian
Leadership may earn up to one-half of their degree (36 units in the MA
in Christian Leadership, 48 units in the other degrees) through distance
learning coursework, including both Individualized Distance Learning
and Fuller Online courses. Students in the Master of Divinity program
may earn up to 48 units through Distance Learning. In all these degrees,
this may include no more than four courses (16 units) of Individualized
Distance Learning courses.
Online (FOL) courses allow students to study a range of theological and
missional subjects via a highly interactive platform over the Internet,
with weekly interaction during an 11-week course period.
Online also focuses on creating learning communities where those who
cannot be residential students or who wish to remain in ministry can
find a deeper level of discussion and interaction with their peers and
INDIVIDUALIZED DISTANCE LEARNING
Distance Learning (IDL) courses afford students great flexibility for
independent study through media assisted materials.
Distance Learning courses are offered through the School of Theology
and School of Intercultural Studies. Created by Fuller faculty, these
media-assisted courses are offered in a digital format, with MP3 audio
lectures, and syllabi, lecture outlines, and a Course Study Guide in PDF
format. Over twenty media-assisted courses are available.
