As Southern Evangelical Seminary alum Dr. Frank Turek understands, in a post-Christian world, the ability to remain steadfast in the truth and penetrate the culture with the Gospel requires intentional preparation. SES provides an integrated approach to philosophy, theology, and apologetics that will equip you to form a complete and systematic Christian worldview. Whether you’re seeking a degree or certificate in apologetics, philosophy, biblical studies, or something else, our uniquely integrated approach forms the foundation of every SES program. This apologetics-focused education provides the necessary tools you need for effective evangelism and discipleship.
SES uniquely integrates classical apologetics, theology, and philosophy throughout each program to equip you to proclaim & defend the Gospel
Our immersive digital campus offers robust online education with live-streaming, recordings, library access, and community
SES offers incredible value by providing first-class education and academic rigor with very low tuition and numerous financial aid/discount opportunities
SES is accredited by TRACS and offers academically challenging, yet practical, Christian education to equip you for any number of areas of ministry
You’ll be learning from faculty who have served as pastors and in other ministry roles. You’ll be able to go beyond textbook knowledge and gain wisdom and insight from their life experiences. Our faculty are also dedicated to getting to know students’ goals and helping them to understand the material in a way that applies to current or future callings.
Our courses integrate theology, philosophy, and apologetics in a way that helps you interact with today’s culture. You’ve likely encountered people who have questions about love, suffering, grief, and God’s plan. You will learn how to answer those questions, defend the inerrant Word of God, and reach people from a wide variety of socioeconomic backgrounds.
Because of our integrated apologetics-focus, we teach the bedrock tenets of Classical Christian thinking like God’s simplicity, impassibility, and more. With the proper foundation for demonstrating the nature of the existence of God, we may confidently build new skills and understanding for cultural engagement and upholding the hope of the Gospel.
SES offers a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies designed to prepare students for later graduate work in apologetics, philosophy, biblical studies, and more. Some hours can even be applied to M.A. studies.
In addition to apologetics degrees, several academically rigorous Masters degrees are available that provide students with integrated and in-depth studies that will prepare you for ministry or doctoral work.
A Doctor of Ministry in Apologetics (D.Min.) as well as a Doctor of Philosophy in Philosophy of Religion (Ph.D.) offer students opportunities to develop their own research and practical resources.
Prospective students are almost always surprised to learn how affordable we keep our degree and certificate programs at Southern Evangelical Seminary.
You need effective training for ministry through online apologetics education — not a crippling load of student loan debt and government interference. The value of a degree here pays off through your entire career and truly has an eternal value as well.
