Art therapyis an emerging and dynamic field in the mental health profession that uses art media as its primary mode of communication, such as paint, chalk, crayons and sculpture. Art therapy is especially valuable for clients who have difficulties verbally expressing themselves. The University of Haifa is the only accredited academic institution in Israel to offer a graduate degree in this vital and growing field.
The Academic Program
The MA in Art Therapy is a year-long program, taught over three consecutive semesters in English. The program includes academic coursework at the University in 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.
