Why #SBTSPreview?

Meet Faculty

When considering seminary, there’s no more important question than who you’ll study with. During Preview Day, you’ll have the chance to spend significant time with our faculty over meals and in classrooms.

Hear from Dr. Mohler

Join our President Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. for a Q&A exclusively for Preview Day attendees. Topics can include life at SBTS, culture, theology, and more. Plus, attendees will be invited to a dessert reception at Dr. and Mrs. Mohler’s home.

Learn How to Make it Work

You likely have many questions about how to “make it work” to attend SBTS. During Preview Day, you’ll have the chance to speak with admissions, financial aid, housing, human resources, and more throughout the event.

In their own words

“I met people who were excited about God’s word and faculty who were excited to teach God’s word. In turn, I left with excitement to come back and be part of it.”
