Our mission is to inspire the worship of God through the creation and presentation of art within the patterns He designed.
Whether these artistic expressions are literary, dramatic, musical, visual, or within new media, we understand that we were made to create in imitation of our Creator. The School of Fine Arts believes that the fine arts are integral to the living of a full life. Towards that end, we offer courses and degrees in visual arts, music, creative writing, cinema and mass media.
We offer many opportunities to expand the learning experience of our students and prepare them for their professional careers.
