About

Explore the relationship between art and faith in the Christian world with the Christianity and the Visual Arts programme of the University of Aberdeen. Study our 100% online Christian art degree flexibly, full-time or part-time.

Overview

Study with an ancient university founded in 1495, and access our world-class university collections, including the Aberdeen Bestiary, wherever you are in the world.

Together we’ll explore:

  • the power of images in ritual, liturgy and popular culture
  • the architecture of devotion
  • visual culture’s impact on the history of Christianity, its debates and controversies.

You’ll examine a broad spectrum of objects, images, texts, and aesthetic discourses to deepen your knowledge of Christian art and its histories, beyond the western European context.
