The graduate Art Therapy and Counseling program offers a progressive curriculum that integrates didactic, experiential, supervisory, and clinical experiences to prepare students for providing art therapy and counseling services in a range of settings. Students learn theories applied to art therapy practice and contemporary approaches that support their understanding of the healing aspects of the creative process. Emphasis is placed on the complex interactions among the client, the therapist, and the art process that promote therapeutic change. Students apply this knowledge in practicum and internship experiences offered in a variety of behavioral health and community settings, such as psychiatric hospitals, medical facilities, schools, forensic settings, and shelters. We provide educational experiences to promote professional development and multicultural competence conducive to the ethical, reflective, and socially-aware practice of art therapy. Our aim is to prepare professional art therapists capable of critical thinking with regard to the therapeutic use of art and the creative process while promoting respect for the diversity of human experiences.
