Hybrid Modular Courses

Hybrid courses at Southern are a blending of curriculum in both online and on-campus formats. Students will complete the course work online as well as attend a two-day on-campus experience. During the two-day hybrid on-campus sessions, students will have the opportunity to interact with their professor and their classmates while also enjoying the Southern’s beautiful campus.

Current Hybrid Courses

Listed below are the current and future Southern Seminary Hybrid course offerings. Check this Academic Records page for semester registration and start dates. The schedule for online learning courses varies slightly from the SBTS schedule, e.g., start/end dates; add/drop dates, etc. Refer to the following 8-Week Terms link for more information, especially the two sub-terms in fall and spring semesters.
Always confirm courses in the  Southern/Boyce Class Schedule Portal or MySBTS;
The hybrid course schedule is subject to change and Southern Seminary reserves the right to cancel any course due to insufficient enrollment.
