I got accepted on the MA Art Therapy at Hertfordshire! I'm very excited, art, psychology and helping others are all passions of mine. I was worried I would not get onto the course because I don't have a degree in Art and Design on Fine Art but I did have a portfolio and enough relevant experience for the course.
Has anyone studied, or going to study this course (at any university)? What's your experience? How is the placement?
I am concerned about the employ-ability after I finish my Masters. Art therapy is less than a century old as a career and with the government, conservative and cutting back all health care routes, cutting back on the arts in education, Art therapy will suffer and be undervalued. I know most art therapists have their eggs in multiple baskets, they are artists, researchers, writers, lecturers, teachers as well as therapists in a variety of institutions.
Can anyone shed light on job prospects after becoming a qualified art therapist? How long would it take to my first paid job do you think?
