SRH UNIVERSITY HEIDELBERG

Our English language International Master Programs in Dance Movement Therapy and Music Therapy at SRH University Heidelberg, Germany, are moving into their second round in October 2020 with a diverse group of students from around the world. Our master programs introduce students to an evidence-based medical framework and at the same time to a phenomenological framework and understanding of the patient in their context and subjective experience. They are operated as the English tracks of the German programs at SRH University Heidelberg.

They are two year programs, and award the title "Dance Movement Therapist, M.A." or "Music Therapist, M.A.", allowing you to continue onto a PhD worldwide. The training is closely connected to research and practice, with its own outpatient center on site. The students of the DMT and MT programs will share the overarching classes in psychology, psycho­patho­logy, psychotherapy, arts therapies, neurology and evidence-based methods with one another.

For more information and in order to apply, please go to the websites of our study programs: Dance Movement Therapy

Dance Movement Therapy is the specific therapeutic use of dance and movement for the promotion of the physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual integration on a scientific basis. As an arts therapy approach it has the potential to contribute to activation, stabilisation, and recovery in the context of prevention, acute intervention, and rehabilitation. In both science and clinical practice, there is an increasing interest in dance movement therapy approaches as an important addition to standard care.

The application can be done online, uploading all required documents as .pdf files here

After the formal approval of eligibility, you will be invited to a personal interview with an assessment of movement/musical skills and your motivation to study with us.

Please don't hesitate to contact us, if you have any further questions:
