Course info


By educating art therapy students to become accomplished clinicians, graduates of the Art Therapy Masters program help individuals and communities reach their full potential. The integration of theoretical and experiential learning forms the basis of the department’s educational process and creates a curriculum rich in critical and creative thinking to help students adopt innovative solutions to clinical issues. The Masters in Art Therapy and Creativity Development aims to create committed professionals who can utilize the creative process and aesthetic decision making in their clinical work enabling them to become leaders in the creative arts therapy field. This degree is also offered in a Low Residency Format.

Our tradition of teaching creative arts therapies is rooted in psychodynamic theory. We offer a historical perspective on the evolution of the field leading to current applications of practice in a variety of settings. Our program combines the power of non-verbal communication, artistic process, and embodied creative action. Our students develop self-awareness and recognition of their unique attributes through experiential learning. They acquire an increased sense of self and resiliency which is translated to their work as creative arts therapists.
