Research Southwestern Preview Day is a day for prospective doctoral students to take the next step in pursuing a doctoral degree at Southwestern Seminary. During your stay, you will see the campus, have lunch with the professors and deans of our various schools, and interview with professors for entrance into the PhD program of your interest.

Whether you are attending a colloquium or talking with one of our current students, we know you will see the gospel focus of our academically rigorous doctoral programs, and we know that you will understand that rigor is designed with Great Commission ministry in mind.

One free night of lodging for the first 25 registrants is available at our Riley Center Hotel and Conference Center here on campus.
