Dr. Daniel Akin is the sixth president of Southeastern and is perhaps best known as a standard-bearer among evangelicals for expositional preaching. He is the author or editor of a number of books, including two major commentaries and a theology textbook, A Theology for the Church.

From the President Dear Future Student: I do not mind telling you, right from the very beginning, that Southeastern is a dangerous place to attend college. It is dangerous because we will challenge you-I will challenge you-to consider afresh your calling and what it is God wants you to do for his kingdom and his glory. At Southeastern we do not primarily ask, “Why should I go carry the gospel to the nations?” Rather, we ask, “Why should I stay in my homeland when there are so many who have not heard?” That does not mean we believe eveyone is called to the international mission field. But many are, and all of our students, in every major, will be encouraged to think globally about their faith and their ministry, whatever their chosen vocation. Whatever God chooses for you to do, we would welcome you to study in Wake Forest with us. Southeastern features programs designed to strengthen and equip the future leaders of Christ’s church. If your plan is to cruise through your degree program and get a cushy job in a comfortable place where there are no challenges or hardship, perhaps you had better think again. But if your goal is to lay everything on the line for the Gospel and pursue the Great Commission as your highest calling, then I know you will find a home at The College at Southeastern. For His Glory,

Daniel L. Akin

Academics & faculty The College at Southeastern offers an education that is undergirded and shaped by the biblical narrative. We study and interact with a world that was created good by God, fragmented and distorted by sin, redeemed by Christ and will one day be fully under his reign. This Christian worldview is the unifying element of the various disciplines within our college. Our curriculum emphasizes the socio-cultural contexts in which we live and the need for Christians to live faithfully and thoughtfully within those contexts. We seek to learn from Christians present and past, engage in issues in the academy and the public square and encourage our students toward passionate and thoughtful Christian participation in society. It is our desire to develop five Core Competencies in our students. Every student should make progress in…

SPIRitual FORMATION

Ministry Preparation

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.

Demonstrate the knowledge, skills and Christian disposition necessary for ministry and leadership in the church and the world.

BIblical Exposition

Critical Thinking & communication

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.

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.

The faculty at Southeastern covenant to teach in accordance with, and not contrary to, the Abstract of Principles and the Baptist Faith & Message. We further affirm the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy and the Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. The College at Southeastern is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The college experience at Southeastern is not just informative, it is transformative. The faculty members care deeply about their students and spend time investing in their lives both formally and informally. College is not about getting credentials—it is about becoming an effective disciple of Christ in whatever vocation you choose, for the glory of God and the spread of His kingdom. collegeatsoutheastern.com

Is the College at Southeastern right for me? ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

From the DEAN We are thrilled and delighted that you are considering the College at Southeastern! We believe that this is the kind of place where students are transformed into thoughtful, competent, and passionate followers of Jesus Christ who are able to impact the world for the Kingdom’s sake. The College at Southeastern is a Liberal Arts College rooted in the Baptist tradition of Christianity. Our highly credentialed faculty has a passion to invest in the next generation of Christian workers who will serve in churches, the mission field, and far beyond. Our curriculum is designed to help students engage the big ideas that have shaped the world, grasp the essentials of the Christian faith, and specialize in a discipline that allows for a career of service to Christ. Though many of our students choose a career in ministry, our curriculum is also ideal for those who want to work in social work, business, law, and much more. If you are looking for a college that takes the gospel seriously, nurtures your affections for Christ, is committed to excellence, and prepares you to think clearly and articulate effectively, then yes, The College at Southeastern is for you! We hope to see you on our campus soon and look forward to serving the Kingdom together with you!

Associate’s Degrees |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

of arts

The Associate of Arts Degree is a 66 credit hour College program. The primary purpose of the program is to equip students with a healthy understanding of a Christian worldview and why this matters in the world in which we live. Students who complete this program are better prepared to: 1) participate in lay leadership in the local church, 2) enter into the business world, and/or 3) continue on a degree path at Southeastern. In addition, the degree is designed as a two-year college transfer program and can help equip students to navigate the philosophies of our culture as they pursue a college degree not offered at Southeastern. Students should consult the institution to which they intend to transfer in order to determine admission and transfer requirements.

FAQs |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

What are course formats for Distance learning at Southeastern? ONLINE COURSES Innovative online classes include engaging lectures and interaction through threaded discussions and live class meetings. You will receive the same content as our on-campus classes, but in a way that is accessible and convenient for your schedule. At Southeastern, every classroom is a Great Commission classroom, whether it is online or on campus. Our online classes will challenge you to have a heart for the nations and equip you to better serve in ministry.

HYBRID COURSES Distance students often desire to know their fellow students and professors. Online classes provide ways to do this well. However, in order to keep the convenience of online classes and increase student interaction with classmates and professors, Southeastern launched the first-ever hybrid class in the Spring of 2009. These classes utilize online lectures and assignments, along with oncampus class time. For one weekend of the semester, students come for Friday and Saturday class meetings to provide a way to interact with other students and professors.

EXTENSION CENTERS The same excellent faculty and adjunct professors teach on our main campus and at our extension centers. You will receive the same world-class education in a more convenient way. Southeastern operates several extension centers throughout the southeastern United States. Core classes and track requirements are offered at these centers and can be applied towards a Masters or Undergraduate degree. Extension center classes can be combined with online, hybrid, or 5 day break classes in order to earn your degree.

WHAT DEGREE SHOULD IMB PERSONNEL PURSUE? There are three Master’s degrees recommended for IMB personnel, and each degree is available completely online. These degrees are the Master of Divinity in International Church Planting, the Master of Arts in Church Planting, and the Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies. The Master of Arts in International Studies is available through the College at Southeastern. These Master’s degrees have been designed with IMB service requirements in mind and prepare students for overseas service. If you are an active IMB employee or returned Journeyman, please contact us about available scholarships. If you have further questions, feel free to email our office at distancelearning@ sebts.edu.

Paying for college A college degree is a major investment, and Southeastern is true to our Southern Baptist heritage in striving to make theological education accessible to any student, regardless of income level. We do not want any graduate of Southeastern to leave here laden with debt.

SBC FUNDING The Southern Baptist Cooperative Program is vitally important to us. Because of Southern Baptists’ faithful giving through the Cooperative Program, Southeastern offers a world-class education at a fraction of the cost of comparable schools.

Scholarships Southeastern offers financial aid in a variety of areas. Our Financial Aid Office offers merit and need-based scholarships and can point students to a number of scholarships offered by churches, states, associations and private organizations. General scholarship applications must be received between March 1 and April 15 for the fall semester and October 1 and November 15 for the spring semester in order to qualify. Visit sebts.edu/admissions/ financial-aid for more information.

maintains a database of student resumes. The office can assist students looking for part-time, temporary employment or fulltime professional jobs. For more information, contact Student Employment Services at 919-761-2365 or visit sebts.edu/admissions/financial-aid.

Wake f orest and the triangle

A close-knit community with a world of opportunity just minutes away, Wake Forest and the Triangle area offer something for everyone. Wake Forest is a unique opportunity with a thriving downtown, where you can walk just about anywhere to shop, eat, have coffee, or simply visit. Wake Forest was born as a college town and for more than a century the town and the college have grown up together with intertwined histories. The original 1830s campus, called Wake Forest College, has changed owners and names, but remains a geographical focus of the community that has grown around it. Historic homes, some nearly 200 years old, decorate the downtown streets surrounding Southeastern’s campus and give the town a genuine neighborhood feel. The downtown streets feature coffee and tea shops, specialty boutiques, restaurants, and much more. While proud of its history, Wake Forest is also a town of the future. The area teems with dozens of restaurants and major nationally-known chains, as well as locallyowned establishments. Several large grocery stores serve the town, and a number of major retail chains including Target, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Lowe’s, have stores in Wake Forest. In 2009, the town of Wake Forest was listed by the Gadberry Report as in the top ten nationally for high-growth areas in the midst of recession. Wake Forest is located at the northern tip of a metropolitan area commonly called the Triangle, consisting of the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. Home to more than 1.2 million residents, the Triangle is one of the fastest growing metro regions in the country. For more information about Wake Forest, check out wakeforestnc.gov or wakeforestchamber.org. The Triangle offers its residents numerous employment, educational and recreational opportunities. The well-known colleges of Duke, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University pepper the Triangle area, bringing to it a vibrant and active college life. The area is also home to two minor league baseball teams, the Durham Bulls and the Carolina Mudcats, as well as a professional ice hockey team, the Carolina Hurricanes. Also, with more than 150 parks, gardens, lakes and greenways in Raleigh alone, there are many places to enjoy God’s creation and see why the area was named America’s #8 Great Garden Cities in an issue of Garden Design Magazine. In 2010, Forbes named the Triangle as the most wired area in America. Three major museums, a 500,000 square foot convention center and an international airport also serve the region.
