Using Art to Make a Difference

If you are interested in using art to make a difference in the world  - through your own creativity and the encouragement of creative expression in others - you will thrive in Seton Hill's Art Therapy major. Through art therapy, art and psychology are uniquely combined, and the creative process becomes a vehicle for communication, self-expression and personal growth. As a minimum of a master’s degree is required to become a practicing art therapist, this bachelor's degree will assist you in exploring art therapy as a career while also preparing you for graduate level education. Students in this major who do not plan to go on to graduate school (or do not wish to do so right away) can also explore a community arts focus, and learn to use the arts to address social concerns. Students who wish to pursue an M.A. in Art Therapy with a Specialization in Counseling can explore the program at Seton Hill.
