Therapeutic Photography

Camera, coffee and a laptop

The Therapeutic Photography course at Robert Gordon University is the first of its kind in the world. You will develop the knowledge and skills to be able to confidently and competently use the technique in practice to enhance self-esteem, self-efficacy and empowerment.

Therapeutic Photography is the structured, guided engagement with the creative intervention of photography in order to produce images for exploration with clearly defined outcomes for the participant. 

The course is aimed at professionals who are working with people who may be vulnerable, marginalised or reluctant to engage.

If you are considering a postgraduate study option starting in September 2024 or January 2025, then please be aware application deadlines are in place which may affect your first choice of start date or course selection.
