Biblical & Theological Studies

Bring the Bible to the Real World

By majoring in Biblical Studies at Providence University College, you’ll expand your biblical knowledge so that you can serve as an effective Christian leader – in the church or in your chosen career. Your studies will span across other disciplines, providing you with a deep foundation for your future. You’ll learn from experienced faculty, who – as Christian mentors – will provide the spiritual guidance you need, in your studies and in your life. Through your Field Education requirement, you’ll take the knowledge you’ve gained in the classroom and put it into practical expression in the real world.
