Art Therapy

     The course aims to enable you to gain the highest level of knowledge, skills and behaviour that will establish you at the forefront of art therapy within a contemporary setting.

The MA in Art Therapy aims to develop practitioners in the use of art as a therapeutic process. It has a strong practical component, in that students gain theoretical knowledge in the classroom setting and undertake experiential learning through working within a placement (or placements) setting. This experiential component will amount to a total of 120 days of practice. Students on the course will be expected to engage with personal process work, through the use of art, and undertake personal supervision sessions to facilitate their learning. Completion of the MA in Art Therapy will allow the individual to register with the Allied Health Professions Council, which will then entitle them to use the protected title of `Art Therapist´
