Art Therapy M.A.

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 purpose 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 to foster transformative learning with a commitment to global, social and cultural advancement.

The program of study offers graduates a comprehensive foundation in art therapy, enhanced by the partnership and collaboration with the Departments of Art and Music Therapy.  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.

Art therapists work with people of all ages in many different environments to address challenging mental, physical and social issues.  They are trained to work as private practitioners and as part of treatment teams in psychiatric outpatient and inpatient programs, hospitals and community health centers, veterans' health facilities, rehabilitation programs, schools, hospices and many other settings.
