Christian Apologetics Track, M.Div.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: SEBTS Graduate Degree Programs

The Christian Apologetics track provides specialized studies for those students who are interested in developing expertise in the defense of the Christian faith.

Students with good reasoning skills and with a desire to engage the culture will find the Christian Apologetics track to be an excellent opportunity to develop proficiency in apologetics. Those seeking to prepare for youth ministry, college ministry, and international or home missions ministries will find this course of study especially useful. Those preparing for pastoral and educational ministries will need to use elective hours to ensure that they are properly prepared for those vocations, as the church pulpit is a primary platform for biblical exposition and apologetic reasoning.

Students who apply for admission should have an accredited Bachelor’s degree and must fulfill all the other general requirements for admission to the Seminary. Those who have no previous background in apologetic studies are welcome.

Degree Requirements

In addition to the M.Div. Core , students specializing in Apologetics must complete the following courses:

Apologetics - 27 Hours

Track Core Courses - 21 Hours

Electives - 9 Hours

It is recommended that free electives be used to strengthen the student’s background in biblical and theological studies. Students may wish to take free elective courses from the list of track selectives.
