Ohio University is excited to announce that our new Master of Applied Arts in Health program will launch this Fall 2024 through OHIO Online!

This program provides opportunities for performing, visual, and other fine artists to advance their knowledge and practical skills necessary to effectively expand and apply their arts practice safely within healthcare and public health settings. In addition to our partnership with Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Arts & Medicine, our program seeks to also connect with local organizations, healthcare providers, and cultural institutions to address health disparities and promote well-being in diverse communities.

Key Aspects of the Program:

  • 30 credit hours
  • Asynchronous online coursework, with required in person, synchronous volunteer and internship hours
  • Interdisciplinary curriculum
  • Cohort model program (start in Fall semester; Spring or Summer start with program approval)
  • Graduate in as few as 12 months (with potential for part-time track)
  • Culminating professional internship

Our Mission: To provide opportunities for graduate students from diverse arts disciplines and perspectives to learn, collaborate, and innovate arts-based interventions for future development and research in professional environments.

Our Vision: Ohio University Arts in Health upholds the program mission through engaging curriculum and expertise from the field to support graduate students in becoming compassionate and collaborative leaders who increase access through advocacy, creativity, and innovation of arts in health opportunities within healthcare and community environments.

In addition to the Master of Applied Arts in Health Program (MAAH), we also offer a 12-credit non-degree Graduate Certificate in Arts in Health.

Applications are now being accepted for the fall 2024 cohort.
