Professional Doctorate
in Therapeutic Arts Practice

Overview

This course offers candidates the opportunity to develop high-level practice and research skills in therapeutic arts practice. A strong emphasis is placed on working collaboratively and multi-modally with individuals and groups in the community health and welfare and education sectors.
Successful candidates will be assigned two supervisors (one of which must be a MIECAT trained practitioner) at the outset of their candidature.

Prerequisites

Candidates will be required to have completed either a MIECAT Masters or Form of Inquiry 1 and 2.

Structure

This program is designed as a 5 year part time professional doctorate. Candidature will be considered provisional until students have completed any ethics applications that are required and the first year progress report (both of which must be completed by December of their first year). Confirmation of candidature will occur after the HREC and the MIECAT Institute’s Education Committee has reviewed the candidate’s submissions and deemed them satisfactory.

Candidates will be required to attend both group and individual supervision across the 5 years and also present work in progress, as well as attend any MIECAT seminars as indicated by their supervisors.
