PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

The Bachelor of Biblical Studies (BBib) programme is a three-year foundational qualification that provides students with thorough biblical and theological knowledge. It also places emphasis on preparation for ministry within a chosen major and seeks to ground students in the development of a healthy relationship with the local church through various exposures and practicals. This programme can be completed over three years but students are able to extend this time and go at their own pace.
