Art Therapy

The Bachelor of Arts in Art Therapy at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture introduces students to a professional pathway that integrates mental health, human services and the creative process. The program supports students’ development of a broad range of skills needed to succeed in careers from art therapy to counseling, enriching the lives of individuals, families and communities.

Tyler Art Therapy offers students access to the resources of the nation's leading art schools; a large, urban, public research university; and faculty who are committed to the power of healing through art. Students benefit from the school’s location in Philadelphia and the city’s rich array of schools, communities, clinics, museums and galleries near Temple, opening up opportunities for networking, internships, jobs and graduate school.

Student community
The Therapeutic Art Club of Temple University brings together students interested in art therapy for discussions, art-making, guest speakers and events to support the community, including self-care nights and mental health awareness workshops.
