SWBTS launches 8-week online courses for seminary students

Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS) is launching eight-week courses for online students beginning April 27.

The effort is part of a plan to help students expedite their theological education and is not a response to the coronavirus pandemic, according to Adam Greenway, SWBTS president.

The first three course offerings are Old Testament I, New Testament I and Baptist Heritage. In the coming year, the seminary will offer six eight-week terms, with an expanding number of courses to be offered.

The courses are open to all students. During the term, students will have several opportunities to engage with residential professors through synchronously live Zoom sessions.

Registration is open to current students. Prospective students should contact the office of admissions to learn how to become a student.

Information about all of Southwestern Seminary’s online programs is available at swbts.edu/online. (BP)
