Bishop Barham College

Uganda Christian University, Kabale



Bishop Barham has a long and very rich history that is intimately tied to the history of the East Africa Revival.  It was founded in 1924 as a Normal School by Drs. S. Smith and L. Sharp of the Rwanda Mission (CMS), training vernacular Teachers and Lay Readers for the entire Western region of Uganda.  

Over the years, Bishop Barham has increased its offerings from Certificate to Diploma in Theology and last year in August 2000, after about 76 years of existence, it was accorded the status of a Constituent College of Uganda Christian University, to begin degree programmes. 

The college is administered by the nine Dioceses of Kigezi, North Kigezi, East Ankole, West Ankole, Muhabura, Kinkiizi, Rwenzori, South Rwenzori, and Bunyoro Kitara.  The college has attained international status by admitting male and female students from all over Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, and the United States.  

U.C.U. Kabale is interdenominational and does not discriminate against colour, race, nationality, and religious affiliation.
