Department of Creative Arts

The Creative Arts Department recognizes the importance of music and the arts in the Christian religion.  In congruence with the SCU mission, these degrees are designed to assist the student in developing basic skills in the practice of a ministry of creative arts in the local church.  Artistic achievement is stressed in the student’s major area through the development of performance skills and general musicianship. 

The Creative Arts Department provides basic instruction to those desiring a position in the church as a minister of music, worship leader, choir director or accompanist.  Students are also prepared for basic performance in piano, voice or guitar.  Students will also be introduced to the areas of teaching, building private studios, evangelizing, recording and producing.

Majors offered through the Creative Arts department are:

  • Church Music
  • Music Performance

Head of the Department of Creative Arts is Dr. Mark Johnson
