About Creative arts and music therapy

Music connects people and places. It has the power to transform and heal, to challenge us and give our lives meaning – and to develop how we understand ourselves, our neighbours, our communities and our worlds.

Creative Arts and Music Therapy will equip you with the skills and training to join a growth industry improving the lives of others through Music, Drama and Dance Movement.

You’ll explore the theory, practice and research of Creative Arts Therapy, and gain clinical experience through four placements in hospitals, schools, residential care and the community.
