One of the College of Theology & Christian Ministry’s most popular majors, Religion and the Arts combines theological studies with an emphasis on the arts. Housed within a campus renowned for creativity across the board, this major gives students an opportunity to express themselves artistically within a faith-led dynamic.

This one-of-a-kind path of study requires students to pursue a minor in one of 11 arts-related programs: art history, dance, design communications, English literature, music (audition required), music business, painting, photography, studio art, theater or writing.

This interdisciplinary program allows you to dive deeper into the history of religion and the arts and discover how faith and culture intersect, both historically and in modern times. It will give you a firm foundation for exploring religious studies through your chosen means of artistic expression.

Belmont students, regardless of major, complete the university’s general education BELL Core—taking classes in humanities, social sciences, arts, quantitative reasoning and wellness that together provide a classic liberal arts education. All students in the College of Theology & Christian Ministry also take the same core classes in theology, church history, Christian ethics, spiritual formation and Christian life.
