Let R be a commutative ring and M be an R-module. We say that M is fully primary, if every proper submodule of M is primary. In this paper, we state some characterizations of fully primary modules. We also give some characterizations of rings over which every module is fully primary, and of those rings over which there exists a faithful fully primary module. Furthermore, we will introduce some variations of fully primary modules and consider similar questions about them.
