Art Therapy Option

The associate of fine arts degree program in art therapy offers
a foundation curriculum parallel to the first two years of a
baccalaureate in art therapy (BA). As a transfer program, this
option offers courses that provide an introduction to the field
of art therapy, and prepares the student for the first two years
of a foundation before entering a senior institution. Students
completing the AFA art therapy option are prepared for a range
of careers that focus on communities requiring therapies such as
returning combat veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress
disorder, children and adults diagnosed with autism, and elderly
individuals diagnosed with physical and mental challenges.
Students develop skills in a range of studio art practice while
simultaneously developing a greater understanding of the field of
psychology and are introduced to how these fields work in tandem
for effective therapeutic outcomes.
