With our confession in mind, Southeastern’s faculty attempts to develop five Core Competencies in students through a Southeastern education. Every student should seek to develop in…
Spiritual Formation Demonstrate the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue an authentically Christian way of life, manifested by trust in God, obedience to Christ’s commands, and love of God and neighbor.
Biblical Exposition Demonstrate the ability to properly and effectively interpret, apply, and communicate the Scriptures.
Theological Integration Demonstrate the ability to understand and apply the doctrines of Christianity to life and ministry.
Ministry Preparation Demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and Christian disposition necessary for ministry and leadership in the church and the world.
Critical Thinking and Communication Demonstrate the ability to think critically, argue persuasively, and communicate clearly.
We strive to do all of this while cultivating in students a delight in God, His Word, and His Church.
Southeastern’s Certificate in Biblical Studies and Theology is a 7-course program of study offered to a preselected cohort of students participating in the Raleigh Executive Training Program desiring to learn basic proficiency in biblical content and theological method. The program is designed to be flexible enough to accommodate the schedule of workings students, as well as those with family responsibilities.
The workload for certificate-level credit includes full participation in all lecture and interactive assignments for a seminary course, but only the equivalent of one credit hour of reading and writing assignments. The specific assignments and workload will be detailed in each individual course syllabus.
When combined with proper leveling course work (and payment for 2 additional hours of credit), credits earned in the Certificate in Biblical Studies and Theology can be applied toward various degrees at Southeastern.
