All seminary students are expected to have regular access to a personal computer and reliable high speed internet access. While it is ideal that students have their own personal computer, Southwestern provides additional computer access through the Roberts Library computer lab. Students must be able to write, format, and transfer documents in Microsoft Word format.
Students are expected to operate a software program called Refworks, which students receive for free as part of a seminary site-license agreement. Students may use Refworks and a manuscript template to accomplish formatting requirements specified in the Southwestern Seminary Manual of Style. Students should refer to the Library Guide (Libguide) on the library website for more information.
Students taking Biblical Greek II or Biblical Hebrew II are expected to own one of three bible language software packages: Accordance, BibleWorks, or Logos.
