Certificate of Christian Studies

Our Confession
We affirm the Bible as the authoritative Word of God. We covenant to teach in accordance with and not contrary to the Abstract of Principles and the Baptist Faith & Message.
 
Our Core Competencies

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 of Christian Studies is a 7 course program of study offered to anyone desiring to learn the basic proficiency in the area of biblical counseling. These courses will be offered in specific sections of online classes, and in some specific sections of on-campus classes. This program can be completed 100% online, or through a combination of online and specific on-campus course offerings. The program is designed to be flexible enough to accommodate the schedule of working students, as well as those with family responsibilities.

When combined with proper leveling course work (and payment for 2 additional hours of credit), credits earned in the Certificate of Christian Studies can be applied toward other degrees at Southeastern, including the Master of Arts in Christian Studies.

Students pursuing the Certificate of Christian Studies should select any seven (7) courses from the following Master of Arts Christian Studies Degree Requirements, for a total of 7 credit hours.

Here is an outline of the course offerings required for this certificate.  Please note that there are a few courses still under development for this certificate. Not every class will be offered each semester.  For example, Great Commission Studies may not be offered each spring, but it will only be offered in the spring. 

As the courses under development become available, we will post updates!  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
