Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) opened its doors in 1950 and over 60 years since then our student body has grown to 2,800 students. Our reach from Wake Forest, North Carolina now extends across the globe. We aim to make God’s Kingdom vision of people from every tribe, tongue and nation worshiping Christ together a reality on our campus and in our churches (Revelation 7:9).

Southeastern trains Great Commission-minded ministers of the Gospel. The seminary is an institution of higher learning and a Cooperative Program ministry of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).

Men and women can be equipped through 40 different programs with degrees ranging from Associate of Divinity to Doctor of Philosophy, including our flagship degree, the Master of Divinity.

In 1994, the Trustees of SEBTS established the undergraduate program now known as The College at Southeastern.

In addition to degrees following biblical studies tracks, The College at Southeastern gives students great flexibility in their academic pursuits by also offering degree tracks like English and History. All students automatically earn a minor in Christian Studies and are able to complete a second minor in tracks ranging from Business to Theology. During their Christian Studies courses, college students are able to study under the same professors and learn considerable content taught at the seminary level.

SEBTS also boasts a certificate program, allowing anyone anywhere to experience teaching from our world-class faculty at their own pace. Equipping the believer to grow in their knowledge of Scripture and live out the great commission wherever they are, SEBTS Go Certificate courses cover much of the same content that is delivered in the seminary classroom.

Consider joining us at Southeastern, where our mission is “to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).”
