Adler University’s Master of Arts (M.A.) in Counseling: Art Therapy program prepares socially responsible counselors to use the creative process to improve individuals’ physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of some of society’s most marginalized populations. Students gain the knowledge and skills to create real change in individuals’ lives through art.
Our innovative program is approved by the American Art Therapy Association (AATA), and graduates are eligible to apply for several licensures and credentials.
The M.A. in Counseling: Art Therapy is designed to prepare counselors and art therapists to serve diverse populations in a range of settings, from clinics and mental health centers, to correctional settings and private practice.
This program also allows students to add on a Certificate in Substance Abuse Counseling for an additional 12 credits of coursework.
