Biblical Studies

Study the living Word in depth from theological, cultural, and historical perspectives.

Study alongside internationally recognized scholars and mentors in one of the largest and most dynamic religious studies departments in North America.

Prepare to be educated, challenged, and transformed by entering the Biblical Studies program at Trinity Western University.

Our students explore Jewish and Christian Scriptures, both historically and theologically, in order to gain an understanding of how these texts have profoundly shaped past and present communities of faith. Led by our close-knit faculty of committed and active scholars in the Department of Biblical and Theological Studies, our students are encouraged to broaden their understanding of Scripture and to investigate current critical issues within the discipline of biblical studies. As our students advance in their studies, they gain a comprehensive understanding of biblical texts. Our students learn to formulate their own contributions to scholarly conversations, along with the skills to communicate these ideas in a manner that is professional, compelling, and—ultimately—faith affirming.
