Throughout history, art has reflected cultural change and development. Great paintings, sculptures, and musical compositions have represented trends in theology and religion as viewed from the artist's cultural context. From Bach's St. John Passion to Bosch's The Last Judgment, the arts display the fusion of theology and culture.
Perhaps you have an academic interest in culture, art, and theology, or you may be a practicing artist who wants a theological and biblical foundation for your work. Either way, Fuller's Theology and Arts emphasis is for you. Studying under faculty members who are pioneers in this area, you will examine the convergence of the arts and culture with theology, both historically and currently. You will have the opportunity to interact directly with the arts in a variety of course contexts, including Orvieto, Italy, and the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.
