About

The Art Therapy program of Capital University combines an artist’s understanding of creative expression with a therapist’s understanding of personal dynamics.

Overview

By using the creative process, the Art Therapy program of Capital University can help to develop and enhance the mental, emotional and physical well-being of people of all ages. Certain characteristics of a person's artistic expression, such as form and content, as well as the associations and reactions to the artwork, can be used by art therapist to explore interpersonal conflicts, develop interpersonal skills, manage symptoms and behaviors, gain self-awareness and develop self-esteem. The art therapist brings to the therapeutic setting a unique view of the creative process as a healing process.

Art therapy can be used as a primary, parallel or adjunctive therapy. It also can be used as a diagnostic tool in the evaluation of individuals, groups and families. Many art therapists function as an integral member of a therapeutic team, while others serve as consultants or conduct private practices.

What you'll learn

The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in art therapy is awarded upon the completion of a four-year program that includes a broad range of courses in studio art, psychology and art therapy. Students will be given the opportunity for individual study in professional settings and will be able to attend lectures, workshops and seminars regularly scheduled throughout the year.  

Where you'll go: careers and placement

Your undergraduate degree in art therapy from Capital University will position you well for the next step in your education and professional career. The Art Therapy Credentials Board awards the designation of Art Therapist Registered (ATR) in recognition of specific standards of professional competence. Certification at the professional level requires appropriate work experience and a master’s degree from an approved graduate program. Your degree from Capital will provide a strong foundation in using art as meaningful expression, as well as preparing for further study.

Art therapists are employed in medical and psychiatric hospitals and out-patient clinics, performing individual and group art therapy, as well as helping in the assessment of individuals and families; in schools and special needs programs working with people who have physical, emotional and developmental challenges; and in nursing homes where art is being used for issues such as family, health and quality of life.

Art therapists also can be found in substance abuse agencies, counseling centers, halfway houses and prisons, employee assistance programs, hospice programs and in private practice.
