The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Reviews
Review The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary was an amazing experience for me. I actually attended the undergrad college of this school which is Boyce College. Boyce is on the same campus and shares everything with SBTS so the experience is very similar. The facilities are beautiful. I woke up on campus every day in my dorm room and was amazing that I actually got to live and study there. The dorms are newly renovated and very nice. They are a little small but are private and new. The library is huge and extensive. The professors are friendly and kind and will invite students into their homes for meals. The community is strong and welcoming. I felt very at home during my time there. I learned so much at Boyce College/SBTS intellectually and practically. I am so thankful for my time there and I wouldn't change one thing.
It is a Christian institution, so you have to accept that people of the LGBT persuasion are lovingly addressed, but are not permitted to study at this school if they insist on living this lifestyle in conjunction with their Christian faith. People who have these desires but are seeking to pursue Christ in spite of them are openly welcomed and free to participate in all aspects of student life. Similarly, people of other religions are not permitted to attend these schools because it is a Christian school that aims to educate and send out Christian leaders and educators into the world. That is not intolerance, it is consistent with the goals of the school and its students.
The seminary offers undergrad degrees ranging from business, science, math, theology, etc; whereas, the seminary offers theological based programs (MDiv., MA, MACE, Ph.D, Ed.D, etc) that prepare future leaders for the church. Classes are small and great professor interaction. The faculty is world renown and are specialists in their field of study.
