The B.A. in Art Therapy prepares students for graduate study in art therapy by familiarizing them with the general principles and concepts applicable to the field. This course of study also assists students in making an informed choice regarding art therapy as a career. In addition to studio art and Art History requirements, students are required to take the Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology and Art Therapy. Students should meet with the Chair of the Department and their adviser about this degree. Our program allows students to:

  • Develop studio art skills.
  • Include pre-professional studies in the behavioral and social sciences.
  • Meet the requirements of the American Art Therapy Association for graduate school entrance prerequisites.
