  • Status: Register Your Interest for September 2025

  • Campus: Blended

  • years: 1

  • Fees: TBC for September 2025

Course Overview

This programme mixes experiential with the theoretical in a venture that combines Jungian Psychology with Art Therapy. By using methods such as art-making, journaling and dream interpretation we engage creatively with psyche in a journey that promises to be both fascinating and educational.

Through experiential learning, the participant will get to know Jung’s model of the psyche, some post-Jungian developments and how to apply such insights in everyday life. For those in the healing professions, the programme should enrich and enliven their existing skills. The Jungian approach is also especially suited to those with an artistic streak and also for practicing artists seeking to discover new ways of creative working.

The programme is aimed at those interested in exploring psyche and creativity. It should also be of especial interest for those either in the arts and/or healing professions (psychotherapists, creative therapists, counsellors etc.). Note that a background in arts is not required.


  • Ability to apply an understanding of key concepts of Jung’s model of the psyche to oneself and within a group setting.
  • Appreciate art therapy processes and methods, based on experiential and context based learning.
  • Articulate creative, analytic and critical insight into personal process by means of written work such as an essay (that includes personal images), and in terms of online contributions.
  • Demonstrate literacy in image interpretation and critically discuss creative expression and art-making as healing, as applied to key Jungian concepts.

Please note this programme is subject to re-validation.

    This 12-day programme is classroom based on our Clare Street (Limerick) Campus and is normally delivered over 6 Fridays and 6 Saturdays. Start time is 9:30am and end time is 5pm on all days (Instructor led art therapy sessions on most days from 9:30 – 11:15; feedback sessions 4:15 – 5pm).  There are also five online evening sessions (typically recorded and shared), on selected evenings, from 7-9pm. Online also includes a discussion forum.

  • Each 5 credits will normally equate to approximately 100 Total Learning Hours. Total Learning Hours includes the time you spend in class (lectures, tutorials, practical elements) and the time you spend completing work outside of college. The balance between these two varies by discipline, and by level of study. You should bear in mind that the workload will increase at particular times e.g. when assignments are due.

  • Coursework includes art-making, journaling, reading, writing and presenting. Assessment will be based on an essay, online contributions and a presentation.
