General

Program Description

MA in Counseling Psychology with a Concentration in Drama Therapy

For over 30 years, the CIIS Drama Therapy program has been exploring how therapeutically adapted dramatic processes work over time to heal wounds, facilitate lasting change, and help people reach their highest potential. Our program integrates experiential, didactic, and clinical courses in a carefully paced and sequenced curriculum, to train students to become personally and culturally aware, attuned, and competent drama therapists and psychotherapists.

The Drama Therapy program is one of only several master's programs in the United States both regionally accredited and approved by the North American Drama Therapy Association, and is one of only a handful of such programs in the world. Ours is the only program that offers a path to national licensure (LPCC).

About the Program

Our graduates work in a variety of leadership positions and settings, including community mental health centers, private practice, schools and educational centers, organizations for serving LGBTQ communities, and clinics offering services for trauma, eating disorders, loss, and self-care.

The 2 to 3 year program includes weekday and occasional weekend classes.
