Department of Theology

Theology Programme Structure

The Bachelor of Theology programme is organized around six main disciplines: Biblical Studies (HBS), Theological Studies (HTS), Religious Studies (HRS), Ministry Studies (HMS), Applied Theology (HAT), and General Studies ( indicated as HUC – referring to University-wide core courses offered by all HCC Schools/Departments).
