Description Belfast Bible College is a constituent college of the Institute of Theology at Queen’s University, Belfast (QUB) which is a Russell Group university and widely regarded as one of the leading centres for the teaching of Theology in the UK. Theology at Queen’s offers students the opportunity to engage with a wide range of theological disciplines, exploring religious belief, the history of the Christian church, pastoral studies and key issues in theological thought. The BD and BTh programmes are three year full–time honours degrees, designed to help you develop skills of critical engagement and to think deeply about biblical truths that will shape your future life and ministry. By completing your QUB undergraduate degree at BBC, you will not only be studying in a faith community which values academic excellence, but also engaging with a community of staff and students drawn from thirty different countries, and a wide range of Christian denominations. This diversity offers QUB students a distinctive study experience, which places academic learning alongside excellent opportunities for spiritual ministry formation and preparation.
