Christianity & the Arts MA
Our Christianity & the Arts MA is unique in being taught in association with the National Gallery in London. The course investigates how Christian scripture, beliefs and practices have found expression in art for over 2,000 years. It also traces the idea of beauty in Western theological tradition. It takes advantage of King’s exceptional location by exploring art in London’s collections. Students on the course go on to careers in teaching, journalism or the church, or to further research.
- Enables students to work across disciplinary and specialism boundaries, in particular to explore simultaneously the art-historical and theological dimensions of Christian art (approaches which are generally pursued in isolation from one another).
- Uses rich cultural resources specifically the artistic, human and web-based resources of the National Gallery in London.
- Provides opportunities for students to learn in the context of an art museum, with likely additional visits/links to institutions with related collections, like the Courtauld Gallery, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
- Enhances the experience of international students at King’s by giving them a stimulating and privileged understanding of one of London’s (and the world’s) greatest treasuries of art.
