Drama Therapy


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

Since then, Nuertingen-Geislingen University offers at its campus in Nuertingen the innovative and internationally recognised bachelor degree program Drama Therapy. It leads to the degree Bachelor of Arts (B.A.).

The degree course is application-oriented with emphasis on both drama and scientifically based therapy training using psychodynamic principles. The course prepares for drama 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 drama and drama therapy, the course focuses on fostering social skills and personal development.

The course includes a supervised internship (5th semester) at a recognised institution of the student's choice in Germany or abroad.
