The Christian College as a Source of Students for Selected Theological Seminaries.
Seaton, Craig E.
To determine the extent to which the Christian colleges serve as a source of students for selected theological seminaries in the United States, seminary catalogs with student rosters were obtained from 11 seminaries. Those included were: Gordon, Grace, Dallas, Fuller, Western Baptist, Talbot, Trinity, Eastern Baptist, Calvin, Princeton, and Bethel. The findings indicated that: (1) Christian college graduates tended to attend seminary within the same geographic region as their undergraduate college, though Princeton and Dallas drew their students from all areas of the country; (2) Christian colleges affiliated with seminaries tended to be the greatest source of Christian college graduates for that seminary; (3) Bible colleges produced a surprisingly high percentage of the total enrollment of the seminaries; (4) several seminaries received a substantial percentage (over 30 percent) of their students from the public sector; and (5) Christian colleges supplied 43 percent of the seminarians to these seminaries.
