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. Note that doctoral degrees do have a limited number of on-campus requirements.

Flexible Course Delivery

We highly encourage all who are able to attend courses on campus and experience the personal in-class and outside-of-class interactions with both students and professors. For those who cannot attend on campus, we offer a live-streaming option which allows you to still interact in realtime with the class. In addition, most courses are also offered via asynchronous online learning. Our classes or normally in the evenings, and nearly every degree can be completed totally online, meaning you can further your education while continuing to work in your ministry area.
