Drawing on both theology and the imagination, the Master of Divinity in Theology and the Arts program will prepare you for the classic functions of ministerial leadership, such as leading worship, preaching, providing pastoral care, forming people of faith, and leading a congregation. Using the arts as the primary lens, the program will enable you to lead a congregation or religious organization with practical skills that draw upon creativity and innovation.
If your career focus is on academia or work in museums, galleries or other arts institutions, rather than preparing for ministry, check out the MA in Theology in the Arts.
