Philosophy, Politics, and Economics

Our nation and culture are becoming polarized. It is becoming polarized spiritually, morally, and politically. Issues that even a decade ago would have been debated merely as ideological disputes have morphed into issues of politics and public policy. To ably serve this and the next generation spiritually, our future pastors, apologists, and professors will need to dialogue with their liberal counterparts while keeping in mind the political facets of public debate. To this end, Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES) feels led to provide the opportunity to its students to obtain, along with their program degree (e.g., M.Div, MA Apologetics, etc.) a concentration in Philosophy, Politics, & Economics (PPE). Non-degree students would also be able to earn a Certificate in PPE. We believe that one must minister to the present generation according to its needs, and to do so with truth and power our students need training in the ethical, political, and economic implications of the unchanging Faith “once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). This combination of PPE training and classical seminary education can be a potent one in combating the new heresies and false doctrines rooted in a secularist, progressivist worldview.
