About Art Therapy at Dominican
The Art Therapy Department at Dominican University of California is the only one of its kind in Northern California. It is unique because it provides a Master of Arts in Art Therapy, which qualifies a student to sit for the Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), as well as a licensure course of study, leading to a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy while preparing the student for a Marriage and Family Therapy License (MFT).
Both the MA in Art Therapy and the MA in Marriage and Family Therapy programs prepare students to become Registered Art Therapists (ATR).
The department also offers a Post Master’s/Advanced Standing Master of Arts in Art Therapy and a PhD in Art Therapy.

The Art Therapy Department draws applicants from around the world, with approximately 30% of students coming from outside the state of California.
Dominican's Art Therapy graduates work with children, adolescents, adults, elders, couples, families, groups, and communities. They bring art therapy into a wide variety of settings which include schools, mental health organizations, inpatient and outpatient programs, hospitals, community centers, nursing homes, assisted living centers, prisons, private practice, and more.
