Just make sure you have the high school courses and grades required to gain admission to the university degree you plan to take. This usually (in BC, anyway) consists of Math 11, at least one Science 11, English 11 & 12, and 5 qualified courses at the grade 12 level (read: anything with a provincial exam attached to it). Make sure you check the admissions pages on the websites of every school you plan to attend so you are clear about it. Also make appointments with the admissions offices if you can and speak with them in person, or email them directly. It doesn’t hurt to be clear.

Some art therapy programs require a Fine Arts (visual art) degree. In this case a portfolio submission to the university is required. Some art therapy programs require that you have a psychology degree, or at least some psychology courses. From what I can see, most programs are not picky about what degree you have, as long as you have a certain number of credits in studio arts courses (or are able/willing to provide a portfolio to demonstrate your work with artistic media) and in all cases a certain number of courses or credits, and sometimes specific courses, are required in psychology to lay the foundation for the psychological aspect. Research your chosen art therapy programs and find out what their requirements are. The sooner you do that, the better; it will inform your decision on what to study at the Bachelor’s level.

I’d REALLY appreciate if you could help me with this: I am very interested on taking a Child Art Therapy Course or Workshop in Vancouver but haven’t find anything besides de VATI which is a 2 years diploma. Do you know of any place where I could find something like this in Vancouver that is not a program, but a course or workshop?

Thanks a lot!

I live in Montreal and am currently working full-time. I have a Masters in Architectural Consevation and a BA in Fine Art. I have also given art workshops at a Mission for the homeless and mentally challenged and have been thinking about art therapy for years.
Are there any part-time art therapy diplomas/degrees that I could follow in person or online whilst I continue working?

I am conflicted on which would be better suited for me and a profession.
Any advice, help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you check the website of the AATA? The CATA states they will offer any specially designated programme offered in the US. I’m assuming it’s probably the same vice versa.

I don’t know anyone who has taken the Art Therapy designation but I do know a couple of people who studied counselling psychology there. One of them loved it and the other said they were far less about community and social justice and more about keeping up appearances than they would have the public believe. That’s the extent of my knowledge. They do seem to have a pretty comprehensive programme though, curriculum-wise.

I can answer some of this, as a Canadian person, through my own research.

1) Check with whatever country you are planning to practice in. I think generally speaking your education would be honoured if it follows the same or a similar curriculum as that in your country of choice/residence. For example, in Canada, even though only programs from North America (and possibly Great Britain/Australia) transfer directly into CATA for certification/registration, they will honour many programs internationally providing they meet the same requirements. So yeah, check with the country you are interested in working in. One thing I noticed about Sweden is that if you plan on working there, but receive professional credentials (ie. in a helping profession) abroad, even if you have work experience they still require you to go back into clinical supervision to ensure that you are working at the same standard they expect, and also, I would imagine, to orient you to the language, culture, and professional environment of Swedish organizations.

2) No, it is not true that you need one of those degrees. Some programs do require that, but most of them will allow any degree providing you have certain psychology courses (intro to psych, personality psych, learning psych, social psych, developmental psych, abnormal psych, etc; some just list some ideas and you can choose your own, while other programs are very specific in what courses they require you to have); in some cases they also do require a certain number of studio art credits (normally somewhere around 12-18, or 4-6 courses), in a broad range of disciplines (painting, drawing, sculpture, print, 3D, digital, video, etc). If you check with the websites of the schools you are interested in they will always have admission requirements posted, and if you don’t get the info you need you can email and ask them directly.

3) To my understanding, at least here in Canada, there is no real difference, professionally speaking. I think the main difference is that if you plan on moving forward into a PhD, you would probably want to go the Master’s route, as a diploma will not get you there. If, however, you simply want to become an art therapist and are happy with that, and just doing miscellaneous trainings on the side as they come up on topics that interest you, then a diploma would be perfect. It really just comes down to personal preference, the way I see it. However…be sure to research you country of residence (or where you hope to work), and also the types of jobs you plan on applying for. What are their requirements? That might give you a better idea of which path to pursue.
For example: a Master’s programme will usually have a thesis component as well as the clinical hours to complete. However, so do schools such as the Kootenai Art Therapy Institute (KATI), who only reward diplomas but also have a thesis component as well as clinical hours and supervision.

Hope this all helps! Good luck in your search.

Best wishes,
b

I have a few questions that hopefully someone can answer. I’m a Canadian living abroad and I’m thinking of returning to Canada to do an education in Art Therapy. I’m wondering if CATA accredited Art Therapy programs are recognized abroad. For example, if I come to Canada and go to the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute for the program there, will I be able to use that education if I am to return to Sweden or elsewhere in Europe?

Second question is this: I have a bachelors degree in Sociology with a minor in Philosophy, but I read somewhere that in Canada, you need to have a degree in Social Work, Counselling/Therapy, or Fine Arts in order to be accepted into an Art Therapy program. Is this true?

My final question: What’s the difference between a training diploma/training program/post-graduate diploma and a masters degree? Would it make a big difference to obtain a masters degree rather than a training diploma, or will both open the same doors to be able to practice art therapy as a career?

Thanks so much in advance for your help!

Sarah

Everything I have ever seen regarding entry to a designated art therapy program requires you to have a bachelor’s. There’s something on it here:

By: breyonne http://www.arttherapyblog.com/schools/canada-schools-programs/#comment-325280 Wed, 18 Mar 2015 19:15:46 +0000 http://www.arttherapyblog.com/?page_id=490#comment-325280 Hi David, pretty much every program I have seen in Canada, you need a bachelor’s degree to pursue a diploma/Masters in art therapy. Most of them do not care what the concentration of the degree is, but require a minimum (anywhere from 3-6, sometimes specific, psychology courses) and sometimes they require you to have actual studio credits as well (which it sounds like you have). I believe St Stephens requires the art therapy students to have a BFA. Just check with them. Some of them require experience in a teaching, therapeutic or counselling environment; some recommend it but do not consider it mandatory. I have researched each of the programs at great length and they all have slight variances, so I would just check the admissions requirements in the various schools and contact them to see if your particular degree would be accepted. As for registration with the CATA, they require a diploma or Master’s degree from a recognized institution (you can find the list on their website) plus a certain number of professional hours and supervised hours logged. But you can practice as a professional art therapist following completion of your diploma/degree, while you are working towards registration. 🙂 Hope that helps. (This is just my findings through research, I’m not a professional and don’t speak on behalf of any institution or licensing body.)

Someone asked about whether there is a training program on the East Coast. I am in the process of starting a branch in Halifax (serving the east coast). This would be a collaboration with the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute (KATI) in Nelson BC. According to plan we hope to start with the first cohort by the end of August 2012

I was very interested in Concordia’s Art Therapy program and was curious as to know how subsidized is the program? If I want to pursue it right after college, would it be financially possible to pay for undergraduate student loans while pursuing this degree? What are other universities that are heavily subsidized?

So if you live in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia or Poland or anywhere else on the planet, you can receive the excellent training offered. You will be personally supervised via Skype and be qualified as a professional Art Therapist with a graduate diploma after completion of the requirements.
