How do you like Emporia’s grad program? I’m looking at grad schools to begin in the Fall 2017 and have already visited SIUE and Chicago Art Institute. I hadn’t heard much about Emporia. Any info would be great!

Thanks!
Katie

That’s what I have. You have to go to grad school no matter where you do your undergrad. You can’t be certified with only a B.A.

I’m in my undergrad there for a B.S. in art therapy prep and I love it so far. Tuition is pretty good and it’s a safe campus. About an hour and a half away from downtown KC. I have taken classes with other students my age (31) and older who travel to and from KC. The grad program typically has class loads that are from Tuesday through Thursday I believe. The only thing is that there are 1000 hours of internship hours required for graduation in those 3 years.
Anyone who is looking for a grad degree for art therapy near Missouri, this is your best option. For most art therapy jobs, you MUST be certified. If you want to practice art therapy on the side in your self practice psychology career you can get away with getting non-certified education, however, there may be legal obsticales to overcome.

I work for ESU and it should only be listed under Kansas

I am currently attending the limited-residency program through Prescott College, this means that I attend colloquia weekends on campus but do the majority of my work online. It works great for me because I too have a family and a home in Missouri. Also, St. Mary of the Woods in Indiana has a similar program, which may be easier for you to get to because I think their colloquia are only twice a year rather than three times per year.

I have two special needs young adult children who live with me. Avila would have been perfect. I cannot afford to uproot my family (financially, emotionally, physically, psychologically, etc) just to pursue a degree. What was Avila thinking????? Emporai and St Louis as well as IL are all too far to go, especially with the cost of gas the way it is. I have to work to put food on the table as well. Any other ideas?

I just went on a college visit there and that’s what I’m planning on majoring in. They said they they are pretty much the only college in my area that offers art therapy.

Marcia, on the Art Therapy Student Networking Forum in LinkedIn groups, many students ask questions like this. You might be able to find an answer there.

Apparently Saint Mary of the Woods and Prescott College offer online art therapy and counseling courses, but I’m unsure about what practicum experiences they have to offer, and also unsure if you would be able to join mid-class. Contact SIUE’s office or another program’s, they can tell you the right answer. Good luck with your next steps!

I heard that TSU reinstated their counseling program, is that true? Regardless, SIUE offers classes for students to complete both counseling and art therapy classes to earn their ATR and LPC after graduation, which not all art therapy programs offer (*plug*!)

I am currently in the program there. You would have to move from Kirksville, but it’s fairly close and I would recommend looking into it:

I need help finding a graduate art therapy program close to Kansas city.
