Admissions: Programs of Study


Art Therapy


Marywood’s art therapy program utilizes an “art-based” approach to graduate-level art therapy education. The course of study combines art therapy theory and technique, psychology, clinical practicum and supervision, and personal artistic involvement to provide the learner with a thorough and rich educational experience.

Our art therapy program prepares students to enter the job market as competent art therapists, become registered as art therapists by the American Art Therapy Association, pass the national Art Therapy Certification Examination, and gain clinical expertise in the delivery of art therapy services to a wide range of patient/client populations. Graduates who pass the ATCB Board Certification exam are eligible for the State of Pennsylvania, License for Professional Counselors (LPC).
