Graduate School of Creative Arts
In the academic year of 2008/2009 the Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Sciences and Faculty of Education at the University of Haifa established the Graduate School of Creative Arts Therapies that offers the following three concentrations: Art Therapy, Drama Therapy, and Dance/Movement Therapy.
The two year program is intended for students with an accredited bachelor's degree from an accredited institution of higher education who are interested in becoming Creative Arts Therapists. Students who will successfully graduate the program will receive a master's degree in Creative Arts Therapies with a concentration in one of the three modalities.
From the second semester students are required to complete a minimum of 500 hours of field experience (Practicum) in a clinical setting. Students receive on-site supervision, as well as small-group supervision at the university. Throughout the program an ongoing evaluation process will be performed between students, their university instructor, and field work coordinator in order to maximize and better student's field experience. Completion of the field experience requirement will provide graduates with an addendum to the masters' degree confirming a professional specialization in Creative Arts Therapies and in art-based diagnosis, in accordance with students' modality of concentration.
In addition, the Graduate School of Creative Arts Therapies offers a special program for practicing therapists who are interested in completing a master's degree.
