Get Equipped to Defend the Faith While Earning College Credit in High School

Dual Enrollment at SES will give you a solid faith foundation before college

Dual enrollment programs are collaborative efforts between high schools and colleges in which high school students are permitted to enroll in and earn credit for successfully completing college courses. This means that high school students earn credit for successfully completing college courses and concurrently earn credit toward the requirements of their high school diploma. Students involved in the program may jump start their college experience and accelerate their college education by accumulating transferable college credits. They are challenged intellectually and academically and are more likely to continue their education beyond high school. Another benefit is that students have access to a college education without interrupting normal high school activities. Dual enrollment courses at Southern Evangelical Seminary are available online and offered via our immersive digital campus experience.

Outstanding Faculty

There are no teaching assistants in our graduate programs and with the B.A. in Religious Studies program, all of your classes will be taught by graduate professors. The same instructors guiding our Ph.D. candidates and many master’s students will be mentoring you and bringing all their advanced teaching expertise to your class experience. Our professors are world-class scholars in their particular area of study.

Fully Immersive Digital Campus

SES has spearheaded the next generation of online learning formats through real-time, live-streamed classes. They facilitate the two-way conversations and pedagogical dialog which will turn your home into a classroom. This model brings the best of the traditional campus learning experience together with the convenience of studying wherever you are in the world.

Why Should You Seriously Consider Studying at SES?

You almost certainly have at least some basic — and perhaps even advanced — knowledge of Christian apologetics. Many new students at SES have studied books like Tactics by Gregory Koukl, Lewis' Mere Christianity, or I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by SES alum Frank Turek and SES co-founder Norman Geisler. These are all very helpful resources, but perhaps you have reached that point in your self-guided research where you hit a wall or find yourself out of your depth.

Apologetics, theology, and even Bible study will never reach their potential without being grounded in sound philosophy. It's not a matter of whether you're doing philosophy. It's a matter of whether you're doing it well or poorly. You can be a good philosopher without being a good apologist or theologian, but it does not work the other way around! Giving you the philosophical foundation you need for both theology and apologetics is just one of the ways that a degree or certificate from SES will serve you well.
