With The King’s College’s Media, Culture and the Arts degree in New York City, students explore the principles of cultural interpretation, the history of artistic and cultural movements, and the driving ideologies of civilization while exploring and challenging notions embedded in postmodernity. At King’s, we believe that a well-ordered society loves God and neighbor above all else, and that our culture-making springs from this love. Consequently, while some would say that religion is merely a byproduct of culture, we at King’s believe the opposite is true: what a society loves and worships dictates what it creates.
Our courses rest on a theological foundation of Christian anthropology that studies culture within meaningful cycles of creation, fall, and redemption. Cultural production—books, technology, music, plays, institutions, media, the visual arts, and more—shape our shared imagination and direct our future.
Many Christians separated from places like New York, particularly in the last century; others embraced a stringent secularism and compromised their faith. At King’s, we are called, both individually and corporately, to embody redemptive transformation. Created in the image of God, we cultivate, create, and restore culture in every city.
