Art Therapy Undergraduate Program
What is Art Therapy?
The undergraduate Art Therapy program at Mount Mary is a pre-professional program that introduces students to the expanding field of art therapy. Built on a solid foundation of studio art and psychology, the program offers the opportunity to learn and grow in a creative and dynamic environment. Through community service and volunteer opportunities, students explore the healing potential of creative action.
Working together with artist-activists and therapists, students learn what it means to participate in our multicultural, global world through opportunities such as community-based field experiences, study abroad, and self-directed senior capstone projects. The art therapy major fulfills all of the prerequisite requirements for graduate study of professional art therapy.
See the curriculum for the undergraduate art therapy program.
