The M.A. in Art and Religion deals with the way in which art and religion inform each other, focusing on a variety of media, especially the visual arts, film, dance, drama, literature, and music in their contemporary as well as historic expressions. Students research projects can range from the history of art in any particular medium to Theological Aesthetics, and can include a variety of time periods, religious practices, theological inquiry, and church institutions, among other options. Each school may have a distinct emphasis.
In addition to GTU courses, students can do coursework in the arts at the University of California at Berkeley and Mills College, while enjoying access to the cultural resources of the San Francisco Bay Area.
