Are you equipped to engage
culture in your ministry?

Our culture is more hostile to Christianity, even though it understands Christianity less than ever before. To effectively engage with the culture, you will need a deeply integrated theology, philosophy, and grounding in apologetics—the bedrock of a degree from Southern Evangelical Seminary & Bible College.

A Unique Invitation

SES offers students something that cannot be found anywhere else—accredited education programs that take an integrated approach to theology, philosophy, and apologetics. Every class at SES, regardless of the subject, is interwoven with every other to form a complete and systematic view of reality and essential Christian doctrine that will better equip you to engage the false ideas of today’s culture with the truth of the Gospel.


Effective, Integrated Training

Our theological training will teach you to think well about God and others, and philosophy courses provide historical context for these ideas. Apologetics at SES brings both streams together to address the real cultural issues we face today.

Professor speaking to class

SES offers an undergrad degree, 10 master’s and doctoral degrees, as well as 7 for-credit certificates. Faculty and staff will help tailor-fit your studies to give you the preparation you need for ministry in church, school, nonprofits, secular fields, and more.

We also tackle the issue of apologetics methods and how not all of them are created equally by briefly examining the five characteristics effective apologetics must have.

We also explore the issues related to misunderstandings and denials of biblical inerrancy and why such issues are important to evangelical theology.

We examine the common view held today that objective meaning and interpretation are impossible given everyone’s individual world view, and the implications that has for Bible study.

As a part of your degree, explore the history of Islam and the Middle East, study the Qur’an and learn about Islamic apologetics and missions.
