The College at Southeastern began in 1994 as an undergraduate school of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Southeastern opened its doors in 1950 with a relative handful of students and a mandate to train ministers for churches all over the east coast of the United States. In the nearly sixty years since then our student body has grown considerably and our reach has expanded across the entire globe, but at heart Southeastern remains a place that trains Great Commission-minded ministers of the Gospel.
In the case of The College at Southeastern, “minister” does not just mean pastor. While Southeastern equips young men for pastoral ministry, we also equip missionaries, counselors, teachers, youth pastors, and more who spread the Gospel across the street and around the world. We do this through our flagship program, the Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies, which includes a number of options for a second major or a minor, or even two minors. We also offer two associate degree programs including the Associate of Divinity degree, which features foundational courses for excellent pastoral training. All in all, the College at Southeastern combines the best of a liberal arts college education with substantial biblical and theological training.
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."
