Bearden Coleman holds a Bachelor of Humanities degree from Biola University, a Master of Fine Arts degree from Texas State University. He also holds a Master of Arts degree in Media Studies from the New School University, where he focused on film aesthetics and theory. Professor Coleman came to The King's College after having taught at Texas State and Queensborough Community College. He teaches film and college writing classes at TKC.
