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 Church Music Certificate is a 21-hour program of study for those who serve in local churches in the areas of music and worship and who have not attained an undergraduate music degree.
This program combines online, on-campus, and hybrid courses to develop musical skills and teach theological and practical content related to music in the church. The program is designed to be flexible enough to accommodate the schedule of working students as well as those with family responsibilities. Courses from the program can transfer into the Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies and Music Major or Music Minor undergraduate degree programs at The College at Southeastern.
There are no prerequisites for admission to the Church Music Certificate program. However, incoming students may be asked to take a placement test in music theory.
