Bachelor of Science in Marketing

Often, when people think of marketing, words like manipulation, half-truths and trickery come to mind. At Southeastern, however, we know marketing is, in essence, not manipulation but rather service. We know that providing the right product to the right audience is an important task. And so when we think of marketing, other words spring to mind. Honesty. Fairness. Integrity. Faithfulness. Make valuable and strategic connections in the local business community that will aid you in your career.We believe that God calls Christians to bring these qualities to the field of marketing. And we believe that you can make the sale and still tell the truth. Within our Christ-centered marketing program, our approach is current and hands-on so that you gain the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to succeed in any marketing career. Classes ground you firmly in the tenets of marketing: consumer behavior, advertising and sales. While you’re a student, you will also have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through community service projects and internships, making meaningful contributions to local organizations, from businesses to churches to nonprofit agencies. By the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to commit your knowledge, problem-solving skills and ethical foundation to a marketing career — and, more broadly, to your community.

Gain marketing know-how through the lens of a Christian worldview.
