Academic staff

With more than 20 members of the teaching faculty, Queen’s has one of the largest academic staff teams of any theological college or course in the UK. Many are leaders in their field; all are actively engaged as learners through their own research. So at Queen’s, you learn from and with those who are also learning, and whose expertise is widely recognised.
