Christian Art Colleges and Schools in the U.S.

Christian art colleges allow students to earn undergraduate and graduate studio arts degrees in an academic environment that supports their religious beliefs. Prospective students can earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) or Master of Fine Arts (MFA) with concentrations in digital media, graphic design, film, photography or animation.

How to Choose a Christian Art College or School

An undergraduate degree program in the fine arts generally leads to a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), which takes 4-5 years to complete. Some universities offer Master of Fine Arts (MFA) programs, and students looking for comprehensive Christian art courses may look for schools that offer both and facilitate articulation between the undergraduate and graduate programs. An MFA is the terminal studio arts degree and generally takes three years of full-time study, readying graduates to teach at an art school or community college.

Further considerations:

  • Look for a school that has the resources and equipment needed for your interest area.
  • Know what sort of gallery space a school affords its students.
  • Research the faculty to see if they are renowned or have gained merit in their fields.
  • Find out a school's religious denomination and whether or not it accords with your beliefs and values.
