Division of Visual and Performing Arts

Dr. Amy Bombard
Dean of Visual and Performing Arts

The purpose of this division is to equip students to share Christ through the visual arts, music, or dramatic performance. Built upon a biblical foundation of the arts, this division trains students to be proficient in their creative discipline.

This division comprises the visual arts and performing arts departments of Pensacola Christian College, both of which offer undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Mr. Scott Roberts, Chair

The performing arts department provides opportunities for students to learn how to communicate effectively through music and dramatic performance. Practical, biblically integrated programs prepare students for both graduate school and job opportunities in Christian organizations and secular businesses. Speech training enhances any area of study by developing responsible oral communication skills and increasing one’s overall possibility of success. Therefore, all students take at least one semester of speech.
