The Master of Arts in Art Therapy program requires a total of 60 credit hours of coursework in art therapy, psychology, and studio art, in addition to 700 hours of supervised field experience. The objective of the program is to prepare competent art therapists who can function both independently and as members of multidisciplinary treatment teams in a variety of settings.
Both full-time and part-time students are admitted. The program is divided into two semester terms and a shortened summer term per academic year and can be completed within two and a half years by full-time students carrying 9–12 credits per term. Alternatively, students wishing to retain full-time employment may spread the academic portion of the curriculum over a longer period of time. All courses are offered in the evening.
