About Us

Welcome to Women’s Life at Southeastern!

The Women’s Life Office seeks to support the mission of Southeastern and the Student Life Division by providing discipleship, spiritual formation, care, counsel, community and shepherding to female students and student wives for the purpose of promoting whole-life flourishing in the maximum number of college and seminary students and families.

As Women’s Life, we have the privilege of working with women in several capacities:

Graduate Studies for Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary offers graduate programs with a concentration in women’s studies. Within the Master of Divinity or Master of Arts programs, a woman may concentrate in women’s studies in order to prepare for Christian leadership positions other than the pastorate and thereby receive the Master of Divinity or Master of Arts degrees with the notation “with women’s studies.” The concentration provided by this track will prepare women for a wide variety of family, care-giving and mission ministries:

  • in church staff and denominational positions in which they develop, deliver and/or supervise ministries to women
  • in missionary work
  • in evangelistic work
  • in women’s conference ministries
  • in teaching the Bible and related disciplines to women
  • in advocacy work
  • in teaching ministries addressing the practical, moral and spiritual needs of women

For more information regarding graduate studies for women, contact the Admissions Office at 919-761-2246 or fill out our information request form.

The Thrive Mentoring program is an opportunity provided for the women of SEBTS in which they may participate for one school year (two semesters) in intentional mentoring by select women associated with Southeastern. Women looking for mentorship may select a mentor or be paired with one and then meet for the specific purpose of practical and spiritual guidance and growth.
