At Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, we will equip you for kingdom ministry. You will prepare theologically through biblical studies; practically through the development of home, life, and ministry skills; and spiritually through mentoring and accountability relationships.
Titus 2:3-5 is our heartbeat. Our fully accredited bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs reflect a love for and obedience to God’s Word.

Housed in the Horner House opposite Mathena Hall, the Southwestern Women’s Center provides a central location for any female member of the Southwestern Seminary family to seek resources, connection, practical training, and mentoring, thereby serving as a catalyst for professional, academic, and leadership development for women.
The Women’s Center also promotes a robust and positive climate for women on campus through discussion groups, mentoring, networking, and advising.
The Society for Women in Scholarship (SWS) is a student-led group of female seminarians dedicated to academic excellence and scholarly discussion.
The SWS serves to cultivate theological dialogue, academic excellence, and professional development among masters and doctoral students. The Society is open to women of all degree programs.
Among the main goals of SWS is mentoring and creating community among Southwestern women, between female doctoral and master’s students, and between scholars and seminary women. Activities include student paper presentations, discussion of relevant theological questions, and topics in professional development.
