Art Therapy & Counseling Program Curriculum ‌Our faculty members are talented educators and dedicated scholars who have been elected to state and national leadership positions in the Virginia Art Therapy Association (VATA) and the American Art Therapy Association (AATA) respectively. They apply a theoretically grounded pedagogy that engages students with both the pragmatic elements of practicing art therapy and the ongoing research that leads to improved care. The pedagogical approach for the core faculty of our program is based on the principals of constructivism in which students actively engage in learning through collaborative and experiential experiences. Our faculty members encourage students to co-create knowledge through reflection on learning and integration of experiences, and applying learning to internships and clinical work. Students learn various theories and are then encouraged to develop their own theoretical approach to the practice of art therapy. The completion of a master's Capstone Project allows students to apply knowledge in the continuum of practice in art therapy, specality areas of focus, and research. While the core curriculum has a mental health focus, other non-clinical areas of emphasis are offered such as Art Therapy in the Schools and Medical Art Therapy. Personal art making is required across the curriculum in a variety of assignments, including visual journaling. ‌Fully-stocked, 2,000 square foot art-making studio is conveniently located on campus to students around the clock. Internships provide students with three semesters (child, adolescent and adult) of hands-on experience in a variety of settings throughout Hampton Roads.‌ Admissions Requirements Both personal characteristics and academic qualifications of applicants are evaluated to insure that students are capable of developing professional competence as art therapists.
