AT DTC there is a serious concern for biblical, theological and missiological study, which is carried out both in the classroom and in private study. While excellence is not our main concern, it is an area in which we seek to maintain a level competitive with and complementary to other Christian colleges.

The Faculty are well qualified in these fields, and a balanced program of lectures, group studies and tutorials has been carefully planned. We also have guest lecturers who have fields of expertise to complement our program.

The ratio for student to teacher is 3-4:1.
