Pre-Art Therapy

Beginning in the 2014-15 catalog, Lindenwood University will offer an emphasis in Pre-Art Therapy designed to provide training for undergraduate students who wish to use their creative skills in a variety of health care environments. Art therapists are involved with disability centers, psychiatric hospitals, special education programs, drug abuse centers, community mental health centers, other health institutions and prisons. 

Pre-Art Therapy

The Pre-Art Therapy emphasis explores the interaction of the visual arts with psychological theories and practices, seeking to use the skills learned in the arts to help in a clinical setting. Beginning with a major in Studio Art, students are taught a broad range of media in preparation for the flexibility expected of working professionals in the field, encouraging process over product; then a minor in Psychology addresses the necessary clinical and diagnostic approaches used, and the statistics necessary to interpret data; and, finally, Arts Education classes and internships in the field give students the necessary hands-on experience sought after in graduate study. 

The program emphasizes preparation for graduate training in clinical art therapy. Students who successfully complete a degree in Pre-Art Therapy should continue on to receive a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Art Therapy.

Degree to be offered:
BA Studio Art with Minor in Psychology and emphasis in Pre-Art Therapy
