Arts and Theology
When artists create works of art, they also generate and sustain communities. A study of religion and the arts is not only incomplete without the awareness of this reality, it misses a profound and engaging opportunity for ministry is a diverse and changing world. In this Doctor of Ministry track, we will explore and analyze the role of the arts in community formation from multiple disciplinary and methodological perspectives, including: Biblical studies, theological aesthetics, the sociology of religion, and visual, material and sensory studies.
The next cohort for The Arts and Theology track is scheduled to begin January 2024. Please contact the Admissions Office for information about applying.
Students are required to take eight core courses, project seminar, plus two electives for a total of 30 credit hours. Students must also conduct a research project and prepare a project paper of their findings. Courses are taught in a combination of face-to face, on-line, and study trip offerings.
