Doctoral Degrees

SES offers two doctoral degrees that uniquely integrate theology, philosophy, and apologetics to build a complete and systematic Christian world view.

A Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Philosophy of Religion is available through the Norman L. Geisler Graduate School of Apologetics, named for SES Co-founder and President Emeritus Dr. Norman Geisler. The seminary also offers a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) in Apologetics.

Flexible Course Delivery

SES provides a fully immersive digital campus experience where every aspect of traditional education is achieved in a virtual environment by integrating industry-leading technologies for live-streaming, course management, and student interaction. Hence, every degree and certificate offered by SES can be completed via our digital campus (the D.Min. program does have limited on-campus requirements). Courses are either live-streamed or offered in a true asynchronous online format (with live-streaming components). Even live-streamed classes are posted back to our course management platform for on-demand viewing. This format enables us to accommodate even the most demanding of schedules. Our digital campus experience allows you to get a first-class education while remaining in your current ministry context.
