Art Therapy


On March 1st 2016, the Hochschule für Kunsttherapie Nuertingen (HKT) merged with Nuertingen-Geislingen University (HfWU).

Since then,  the innovative and internationally recognised bachelor degree program Art Therapy is offered at Nuertingen-Geislingen University. It leads to the degree Bachelor of Arts (B.A.).

Based on psychodynamic principles, art therapy uses approaches, insights and impulses from the fine arts to support healing processes and personal development. The degree course is application-oriented with emphasis on both art and scientifically based therapy training using psychodynamic principles.

The course prepares for art therapy practice in many social, clinical and pedagogical areas of work. During the entire course, particular emphasis is placed on linking theory and practice and up-to-date scientific findings.

In addition to teaching art and art therapy, the course focuses on fostering social skills and personal development.
