About

History

Fuller Theological Seminary was founded in 1947 by Charles E. Fuller, a radio evangelist known for his Old Fashioned Revival Hour show, and Harold Ockenga, the pastor of Park Street Church in Boston. With its founding, the seminary's founders sought to reform fundamentalism from its separatist and sometimes anti-intellectual stance of the 1920-40 era.

Education

Fuller offers 18 degree programs at 6 locations—with Spanish, Korean, and online options—through our Schools of Theology, Psychology, and Intercultural Studies as well as 20 centers, institutes, and initiatives. 

Career

The Call Discernment Office gives students the broad vocational and formational support they need to bridge their academic studies with real-life ministry. Students receive guidance from a personally assigned vocational advisor who helps them understand and explore their options, giftings, and sense of call—with courses and an apprenticeship that help them integrate their studies with concrete practices—to form students as reflective, agile practitioners who are responsive to God’s call.
