Degree Requirements

The art therapist is a specialist who combines the qualification of being a competent artist with specialized skills in the field of psychotherapy and education. ~ Edith Kramer   

In response to ever present demand for highly qualified allied health professionals in the fields of creative arts therapeutic programming, Georgia College Department of Music Therapy is now offering a Master’s in Art Therapy. The program is currently accepting program admission applications.

The Master of Arts in Art Therapy is an innovative program in the creative arts at Georgia College, the first implemented in Georgia. The program’s mission is to provide comprehensive art therapy education, to develop astute clinicians, scholars, teachers and leaders; to acquire skills and knowledge to work in a variety of settings; and foster transformative learning with a commitment to global, social and cultural advancement.  

The program of study is uniquely designed offering graduates a comprehensive foundation in art therapy, enhanced by the partnership and collaboration with the Art and Music Therapy Departments. Students gain a minimum of 900 hours of clinical experiences and complete at least three field work placements-one working with children, adolescents and adults/seniors. Interns have a variety of placements including inpatient psychiatry facilities, schools, correctional facilities and day treatment facilities. Our broad range of curriculum and cross-discipline collaborations within a liberal arts environment provide students with a global education, and the desire for excellence as students, professionals and life-long learners.
