"I believe creative arts is a great outlet for both physical and emotional problems which started me on the path to studying Creative Arts and Health."

Linda Brotherton, Diploma of Creative Arts and Health Student
Engagement with the creative arts can bring joy, restore self-confidence, improve mental and physical wellbeing and contribute to improving the quality of life for everyone. An ageing population and rising levels of depression and anxiety in youth, the elderly, and people living in rural areas are significant challenges for Tasmania, Australia and internationally. Research is demonstrating ways in which music, visual arts, theatre and other creative arts can contribute to addressing these challenges.

The Diploma of Creative Arts and Health offers you an interdisciplinary study experience that is unique. You will gain knowledge of innovative uses of creative arts in a range of community and health-care settings, while developing an understanding of the effects of the arts on brain and body in the social and cultural context.  There are opportunities to explore your own creativity and learn about international best practice for ethical and effective implementation of arts programmes in both community and healthcare settings.

If you are interested in how the power of creative arts can be used to promote wellbeing and better health in a range of community and healthcare settings - then this course is for you!

Fees & scholarships

Domestic students

Commonwealth supported places (CSP)

Domestic undergraduate students may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place in this course. If you are offered a Commonwealth supported place, your fees are substantially subsidised by the Australian Government, and you will only be required to pay the student contribution amount for each unit.

You may be able to defer payment of the student contribution amount by accessing a HECS-HELP loan from the Government. This means you can pay your tuition fees later once you start earning above a specific threshold. For more information, please refer to the Study Assist website.

The student contribution amount for each unit of study is based on its discipline area. Student contribution amounts are charged for each unit of study, this means that amounts will depend on which units you choose. Find out more about student contribution amounts.

Detailed fee information for domestic students is available at Scholarships, fees and costs, including additional information in relation to the compulsory Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).

International students

International students should refer to the International Students course fees page to get an indicative course cost.
