Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

This emphasis is intended for those students who plan to enter a graduate program in art therapy. Graduate school for this career choice is mandatory. The program endeavors to focus the pre-art therapy student on learning to appreciate art, to understand creative processes, and to develop artistic skills in studio art. In light of available scholarships, we recommend a GPA of no less than 3.25 and a portfolio of original works with no less than twenty (20) pieces, to be eligible for graduate school enrollment. A basic knowledge of human development and psychological theories for understanding human behavior are gained by the completion of the psychology minor. Undergirded by a Christian perspective of human kind and healing, this is an interdisciplinary emphasis that unites the studio arts with the behavioral sciences.
