A Two-Year Program Leading to the A.S. Degree

This curriculum prepares students who are interested in becoming art therapists. Art therapy combines the artists’ understanding and practice of creative visual expression with the therapists’ understanding of personal dynamics. Art therapy can be a diagnostic tool and/or a primary form of therapy. Art therapists are employed in psychiatric hospitals, special education programs, nursing homes, drug abuse agencies, halfway houses, employee assistance programs and in private practice. Persons wishing to enter this field may earn a bachelor’s degree in Art Therapy. More frequently, a bachelor’s degree in Art or Psychology is followed by a master’s degree in Art Therapy. This program combines study of art, psychology and general education courses appropriate for transfer to a four-year school where a degree in art, psychology or art therapy is sought.
