Discipling Disciples, Teaching Teachers

Parachurch ministries are an important resource for providing valuable apologetics and evangelism training to the church. Ministries like CrossExamined, founded by SES alum Dr. Frank Turek, in addition to Norm Geisler International Ministries, Engage 360, and many others help equip thousands each year with the truth of the Gospel. For those wishing to join these efforts in bringing sound Christian thinking to the masses, integrated training in theology, philosophy, and apologetics is a must. Are you prepared?

Uniquely Integrated Approach to Christian Thinking

Thoroughly Academic & Practical

On-Campus, Live-Streaming, & Online Classes Available


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.


Whether you are interested in a full degree program or simply want to add to your toolkit, SES can help you be equipped. Nearly all degrees can be completed totally online. Note that our certificates are for-credit classes that can be rolled into a degree program at a later date if desired.

It is certainly true that in many contexts you get what you pay for. At SES, however, the value of your education will far outweigh the actual costs you pay. Many Christian institutions can cost nearly $2,000 per course for a typical master’s-level education. We provide even more value by offering a unique, and superior, integrated approach to classical Christian thinking at a fraction of the cost.









Prices are per credit hour. Approx. $175 of fees may apply.
