Og at den fulde master (120 point) opnås ved gennemførelse af 3 “summerschools” i Sass Fee, Schweitz. Det betyder at jeg kan være thesis-vejleder og dermed at thesis kan skrives på dansk.

Contract for EGS module providers

This contract regulates the tasks with an institute that is qualified to serve as an EGS module provider
for the MA program at EGS, AHS. In particular it covers the following operational procedures:
– training objective and the curriculum
– coordination and collaboration with the module provider
– mutual internet publicity of both parties
– compliance with quality standards
– quality management of the EGS module provider
– obligation towards enrolled students should the institute close.

The EGS module provider must be financially independent of EGS.

A. Guidelines for Training expected from the EGS module provider.
An EGS module provider program is in accordance with the Bologna treaty. The MA curriculum consists
of 120 cp ECTS, whereof 60 cp ECTS take place in intensive summer schools, and 60 cp ECTS are taken
at the EGS module provider. A student needs a BA or equivalent. Students without BA who have
extensive training can apply for the EGS access procedure that evaluates whether they need to do a BA
waver exam.
Training at an EGS module provider can take local regulations and traditions into consideration. These
considerations reflect traditions of therapy, religion and culture of the region.
The curriculum of the modules of module providers is reviewed and approved by the Deans office of the
MA program. Any change has to be approved by the Dean of the MA program.
The amount of time is given in cp ECTS. One academic hour includes a break of 10 minutes. A Long
Session [three hour session] is therefore two and a half hours of training without a break. A training day
with three long sessions can therefore be considered 9 academic hours. If the training is residential, a day
like this can count for 10 hours presence time, study discussions during breaks can be included.
In congruence with Bologna, 1 cp ECTS counts for 30 hours workload. EGS considers a relationship of
1/3 presence time, to 2/3 self studies (home work). Self studies need to be advised by the faculty of the
module provider.

B. Guidelines for Evaluations and Credits.
EGS expects EGS module providers to establish a student and faculty “culture” that is adequate to the
Expressive Arts. Standards for qualification should be established by the faculty and announced in
advance of the studies.
An EGS module provider uses the same evaluation forms, as used for the summer school modules.
Each course needs to be evaluated by the students.
At the end of an MA module cycle, the summary of the evaluation results needs to be sent to
EGS office and kept on file. The evaluations need to be summarized by an external evaluator.
The faculty members of module providers are obliged to sign the EGS Testatbooklet. The signature
attests that the student passed the courses.
The Degree issued at EGS is a Masters of Arts Degree in Expressive Arts Therapy, or Expressive Arts
Coaching, Consulting, or Expressive Arts Conflict Transformation and Peace building with a Minor in
Psychology and in special cases a concentration in one of the expressive arts disciplines, Education,
Spirituality or other, if the module provider training program had an appropriate focus.
Students must be in the admitted [matriculated status] from the beginning in order to have their studies
accounted for the MA degree. An MA candidate can either start with a first summer school module or
with a module provider module. Modular studies allow studies in any sequence. The examination
summer school module follows last.

The admission interview can be done with the director of the module provider.

C. Guidelines for Quality Control for EGS module providers:
• A module provider teacher has the same qualification as an EGS faculty member. Only
teachers with a CAGS or a postmasters degree, Ph.D. or Professor are qualified to teach on a MA
level. An updated Vita from each faculty member needs to be on file at the EGS office.
Faculty members of module providers participate in a self evaluation and peer evaluation process.
Evaluations show resources and concerns with respect to the requirements put forth by the EGS
– The Peer Evaluation: can be combined with team teaching. Peer evaluation has to be done
within 5 years.
– The Self Evaluation: The faculty member writes a self evaluation every second year.
– The evaluation forms are sent to the EGS office.

D. Conditions that have to be met in order to qualify as an EGS module provider
In order to be considered an EGS module provider, an institute must be a member of the International
Network of Expressive Arts Therapy Training Centers and meet its current qualifying criteria.
These criteria are contained in the Spring Symposium Minutes and may be revised yearly at the
Directors Conference during the Spring Symposium.
