This senior, capstone course for the Art Therapy major integrates knowledge, skills and experiences from prior coursework and practicums with the particular needs of the student’s chosen community partner setting. Through extended, hands-on application of art therapy theory, media, and methods, individual mentoring, and participation in the weekly seminar, students will develop increased understanding of the role of art therapy, art therapists, and themselves as art therapy students, in building a more just and compassionate world. Placements are tailored to each student’s individual interests, skills and goals. Students are required to work approximately 12 hours/week for 15 weeks at an approved site, arranged by student and the art therapy professor prior to the beginning of the semester. Students also attend a weekly two-hour class with required reading, research and oral and written assignments related to their internship and the profession of art therapy.
