Art therapy is a dynamic field in the mental health profession that uses art media, such as paint, chalk, crayons and sculpture as its primary mode of communication. The University of Haifa is opening a one-year, international MA program in art therapy that is designed to prepare professionals to practice in this new and growing field of therapy. The University of Haifa is the only accredited academic institution in Israel to offer a graduate degree in art therapy.
The MA in Art Therapy is a year-long program, taught over three consecutive semesters in English. Students will complete their academic coursework at the university during the fall and spring semesters. During the summer semester, students participate in a practicum and receive individual and group supervision.
Upon completion of the program, students will earn a master of arts in Creative Arts Therapies with a specialization in Art Therapy.
Graduates of the program will be trained to work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, educational institutions, community mental health facilities, prisons, hospices, day-care centers and private practices.
