Arts in health, or arts in medicine, is a growing field that promotes health through the arts. Grounded in research, our faculty teach best practices for arts in health as a discipline in community, health, or public health settings. Arts in health professionals use the arts to transform lives by reducing stress, enhancing well-being, and improving health outcomes.
Our evidence-based curriculum is taught completely online by arts in health leaders who direct, manage, or facilitate their own arts in health practices. Our program also includes a practicum semester which provides the opportunity for you to find a local health or community setting to practice real-world facilitation of arts in health.
