Program Overview

The APC in Arts in Health program was designed to give professionals in the health care, human service, social work, psychology, and counseling fields an innovative approach to incorporating the arts into their work. The courses give participants ideas to increase the use of arts in patient care as well as in prevention and educational programs. In this way, the program teaches how to use the arts in both professional and community settings, ensuring a wide impact.

Certificate completion is made convenient for those who work full-time by its flexible scheduling. Students must complete 15 credits, or five courses, to earn their degree and can choose from a wide range of elective courses. The certificate is a great means for professional development, but Lesley stresses that it is not intended for persons who are seeking licensure or accreditation in Expressive Arts Therapy. The university encourages students interested in seeking such a licensure to explore their other Master’s level degree programs.

Students interested in learning more about the course availability and offerings are encouraged to contact the Arts in Health certificate program faculty. Contact information can be found on the school’s website.
