Course Information

Art Therapy Degree Overview

Art therapists use art for healing and growth among their clients, which may include children, victims of abuse, people with disabilities and senior citizens.

As the nation’s aging population increases, there has been a significant rise in the need for mental health professions. Art therapy is a growing career field and can serve as a complement to other types of therapy, by using the creative process to help people improve their mental health.

In this pre-professional program you will take courses in studio art, ranging from drawing to ceramics to printmaking. You will also have required psychology classes, exploring topics such as group dynamics and theories of personality. A course on professional strategies for artists will, among other items, help you put together a well-designed portfolio—a graduate school admissions requirement—that emphasizes your skills in a variety of mediums.
