It is for those persons who already possess a master's degree in art or related areas, who are highly motivated and self-disciplined, and who wish to pursue further graduate study in a specific area. A Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study is awarded at the termination of study. Related fields recommended for Art Therapy and CAGS include psychology, counseling, social work and art education. Art Therapy focused CAGS students who are interested in meeting standards for registering as art therapists with the Art Therapy Credentials Board must take additional credits in practicum experiences and group supervision.
