New Arts in Health Course

The Hamline University Department of Studio Arts and Art History, in collaboration with the Public Health Sciences program, is excited to announce a new course offered in January 2014: Arts in Health. This course brings together studio arts, art history, and public health sciences students to explore real world applications of arts in the health field and the relationship of creativity to health. During the spring semester, a select group of these students will get a chance to go into Shriners Children's Hospital for a 120-hour internship experience. The Arts in Health course and internship experience, taught and supervised by Mr. Nicola Demonte, will provide students with the kind of unique high impact learning opportunity on which Hamline prides itself. For further information email Professor Aida Audeh, chair of the Department of Studio Arts & Art History or Professor Sharon Preves, chair of the Department of Sociology.
