About the College at Southeastern

Who are we?

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. At its core, Southeastern remains a place that trains Great Commission-minded ministers of the Gospel.

What we do.

In the case of The College at Southeastern, “minister” does not just mean pastor. While we do equip pastors, we also equip missionaries, counselors, teachers, youth pastors, writers, business professionals and more who spread the Gospel across the street and around the world. The College at Southeastern combines the best of a liberal arts college education with substantial biblical and theological training.
