Art Therapy/Counseling (Master's Degree)
Through the art therapy/counseling program, you will become a professional who is able to integrate art and psychology as a vehicle for healing. The program trains art therapists through a course of study that blends theory, technique, and practice. With classes in art therapy, counseling, psychology, research, and studio art, you’ll develop your artistic and creative skills in large, studio spaces, while also training to conduct research.
And, you’ll quickly translate your knowledge into real-world skills, starting with a practicum experience in your second semester. Internship opportunities begin in year two, and provide the chance to work with individuals and groups of all ages who are experiencing mental illness, emotional and behavioral challenges, cancer, medical issues, brain injuries, or sexual and domestic abuse. So you won’t just talk about leading in service to others; you’ll be living it.
