Media Arts

Media Ministry


The Bible may be an ancient book, but Tyndale’s four-year BA Media Arts - Media Ministry program brings the Word to a new generation. By studying Bible stories that express God’s relationship with Creation, students will learn the literary forms of biblical traditions, as well adapting them to your own creative allegorical works. While exploring how media influences modern culture, you will have the opportunity to creatively “make” theology through media. You will assess Christian themes and meaning behind films, comparing aesthetic approaches and their effectiveness as “apologetic art that reveals truth.”

Students work with charities and non-profit organizations in their third and fourth years, creating media for clients, learning professional etiquette, and making contacts for employment after graduation.

Tyndale's Media Arts programs are designed to enable students to develop as meaningful creative storytellers, empowered with the technical skills to work, serve, and lead in creative and Christian communities. Students will be mentored as filmmakers, media artists, and content leaders equipped to tell 21st century audio-visual stories from a Christian worldview.

Media Arts courses in this program are delivered primarily through competency based online courses. Students will be encouraged by mentors and fellow-students in forums and weekly critiques as they develop their talents.
