    Dramatic performance reveals truth. It makes the invisible visible. It speaks to souls on the level of the imagination, making abstract concepts tangible, helping ideas become things we can see and hear.

    Sacred Music

    Music gives glory to God. It also expresses the glory of man. At its best, music gives voice to the beauty, power, and wonder of the human experience.

    Narrative Arts Minor

    Visual Art joins with Writing, Film and Theatre as elemental components of story-making and story-telling. Narrative, sequential art has the power to incarnate the deepest mysteries of human identity and human destiny.
