The Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts (ITIA) is a research institute based at St Mary's College, the Divinity School at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.

ITIA aims to advance and enrich an active conversation between Christian theology and the arts — bringing rigorous theological thinking to the arts, and bringing the resources of the arts to the enterprise of theology. As part of this, it seeks to explore the role of the imagination in the arts, as part of a wider theological interest in the imaginative aspects of our humanity.
