The kind of thinking that changes the world.
The L.R. Scarborough College at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is an undergraduate program that prepares students to engage culture and advance the Gospel. We are a Southern Baptist liberal arts college, training students to think biblically and critically about the world around them. Our degrees are designed to allow students the opportunities to engage a multitude of worldviews with the truth of Scripture.
Scarborough College trains students to know truth, share truth, and defend truth. Our students are prepared to engage cultural issues with the truth they know, share truth with those who are searching, and defend truth against skeptical attacks with robust critical thinking. It’s the kind of thinking that changes the world.
National statistics show that two out of three active youth group participants stop attending church in college. These students report the main reason for their attendance drop-off is “open-minded” professors who intentionally try to dismantle every belief the student has ever held. At Scarborough College, minds are challenged, but souls are also refreshed. Students are taught and guided by professors who firmly hold to the inerrancy and infallibility of Scripture. Graduates of the college will be able to share Christ with people of all walks of life, from children to doctors of philosophy.
The mission of Scarborough College is to create effective witnesses for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, regardless of the student’s academic pursuit. The college prepares students to live with a heart on fire with evangelistic zeal and a head filled with the wisdom of God.
