Pre-Art Therapy Major/Minor

A Sketch of Art-Therapy

The interdisciplinary Pre-Art Therapy program, which combines core psychology courses with a broad range of art and art education classes, is designed to teach you about the therapeutic uses of art and how to lead others in artistic exercises. You’ll gain experience with a variety of artistic mediums, from drawing to ceramics, learn how to teach art techniques, and take psychology classes that cover everything from lifespan development to mental disorders.

Taylor’s Bachelor’s in Pre-Art Therapy is a pre-professional degree that paves the way toward continued study for a Master’s Degree in Art Therapy. You will build a psychological understanding of people and their varying needs for therapy, as well as learn how to make art accessible to others through art education classes. Art courses focus on drawing, painting, photography, two- and three-dimensional design, and ceramics.

Every Pre-Art Therapy student completes at least one practicum and is strongly encouraged to take additional psychology courses in psychological counseling, psychology research, and data analysis.
