Leading and participating in modern worship is an undertaking that integrates a variety of skills. In recognition of this need, the Anderson University Worship Arts major prepares students with training in music, acting, dance, audio, video, and biblical training to enable their calling.
What classes will I take?
Among the classes in the 44-hour major are:
- art, faith, and culture
- live sound production
- visual communication
- sacred music
- faith and worship
What experiences will I have?
Students at Anderson University have opportunities to participate in Chapel both at campus-wide gatherings that take place twice per week and in departmental offerings. They can translate the training they are receiving in our School of Theology and Christian Ministry, School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, and School of Humanities into action while they are still students. An internship is also a required component of this program.
What kind of jobs can I anticipate after graduation?
Worship arts offers the framework needed for folks who are called to ministry through music and performance. It also prepares those who plan to continue along a path to ordination to approach worship in a broad sense. It cornerstones well into the music industry as a whole and may serve as a starting point for graduate study in music therapy. The interdisciplinary nature of the degree also prepares students to be music critics.
