This initiative allows students to participate in Southwestern’s existing Ph.D. program as a residential student or online through live video web conferencing. Regardless of the means, all students have access to the same quality education.

Wherever you are,
Southwestern is there



Southwestern’s flexible access Ph.D. allows students to enroll in the seminary’s prestigious doctoral program without relocating to Fort Worth. Though certain aspects of the program, such as orientation, the comprehensive exam, and the dissertation defense, must still be performed in-person, the remaining requirements may be fulfilled from anywhere in the world.
