"The theology programs at Fuller are fantastic, with world class professors and a nurturing environment. I have strong relationships with faculty in the SOT and SIS departments (Theology and International Studies). However, my PhD is in psychology, and unfortunately the SOP (school of psychology) can be a very toxic and anti-student environment. After talking with graduates from previous years (stretching back more than a decade), it seems like this is a systemic problem. Those seeking a theological/psychological education should consider doing an MA in theology and pursuing a PhD in psychology elsewhere."

"At Fuller, I am receiving a masters in Divinity and I love what I am studying. The pros of this program is the flexibility. It does not limit job options after graduation, rather it propels you to many job options by helping the student discover their true calling. At Fuller, my thoughts and beliefs are challenged and I am pushed further so that I can question what I think and determine reasoning for things. Some cons for the program is that it is 3 years so it is a longer program, but you get a lot out of the three years. I love being a part of a school I believe in."

"Fuller invests in its students. It selectively chooses those it accepts to the program, but then once accepted, the school goes above and beyond for its students."

"Fuller is a great school, but it is a private school so it might be a bit more costly. Student life is lively and the campus affords students so many ways of interacting and meeting one another. The academics are great and the research is cutting edge."

"The Intercultural Studies program allows you to appreciate diversity and understand contexts that people bring to life and their daily perspectives. It becomes imperative for today's mind to appreciate how and why people do and behave the way they do. Hence Intercultural studies gave me the tools and a divers constructive paradigms to engage in today's cultural diversities, both in the secular and the "sacred"."

"Pros would have to be the real life experiences that are brought into the classroom. As well as, the knowledge of the professors and the curriculum that we us. Cons would have to be the distance I have to travel to get to my classes (mostly because I live so far away)."

"Fuller Theological Seminary offers exceptional training for those interested in clinical psychology. I love the faculty, and my lab advisor has been especially instrumental in my successes. However, the expense of the program is almost crippling so living comfortably while completing graduate school is a difficult endeavor."
