"The Art Therapy and MFT professors at Notre Dame de Namur are active participants in the professional organizations and committees that help to steer the future of the art therapy field. They are accomplished and dedicated professionals who always make time to support, guide, and connect with their students. The program is well-rounded and future-focused with a harmonious blending of art and psychology."

"I am grateful for my art therapy education at NDNU. The small classes offered an opportunity to get to know professors and receive the support and guidance that I needed. I was challenged to grow as a student and a professional, and feel proud of the education and experience that I received through this program. The fact that NDNU also offers a PhD in art therapy is an added bonus; several professors were PhD candidates or recent graduates of the PhD program, which meant that they were also immersed in the learning process and were excited to expose students to the most current and relevant art therapy research."

"This is my truth & not speaking on behalf of all students. As a person of color my experience hasn’t been the best. I do appreciate the diverse community of students but I have had discouraging encounters with students/ staff that aren’t culturally aware of their prejudices. It’s frustrating coming to school having to educate others & be in the defense in order to get through the day. There needs to be longer courses covering diversity to prepare students for the diverse communities we will work in & live in. I do appreciate the few professors that invest in students By sharing real stories & bringing in non traditional tools for art directives. Many classes can be taught online because they don’t involve art & we read directly out of the book out loud during class. Be prepared if you’re to grow thick skin & seek outside support."

"If you're curious about becoming an Art Therapist and want some quality classroom work with great instructors and classmates - then NDNU is an obvious choice. I'm currently in my first year at the program and have had nothing but a positive experience with the Graduate Art Therapy Program. The courses and curriculum offered at NDNU are well respected both within and outside the school. Looking forward to meeting the new students in the fall!"

"The Masters Marriage and Family Therapy and Art Therapy Psychology program is amazing! All of the professors have been in the field of art therapy, or marriage and family therapy, or both and have great personal experiences to share along with utilizing their experiences to provide thorough training and teaching. All professors and fellow classmates support one another and guide all new students in the program. The program is small and close-knit. It was a great experience to have so much support, freedom to expand on my creativity, learn all that I need to do the jobs following graduating, and the opportunity to learn so much about myself! This program was the only one of its kind offered in Northern California at the time I was looking, and I was so thankful to find it. The career path is ideal for someone interested in art, psychology and helping others. Even after graduating, my professors stay in touch with me and make an effort to check-in and still support me. We have Facebook groups and a Google group, which are frequently sending out job, connection, training, and more opportunities."

"I highly recommend this program if you want to be an art therapist. Small classes, caring committed core faculty, and a commitment to social justice. This program cares about each student and wants us to succeed and become the best art therapists we can be. The thesis process is rigorous and an effective learning experience in analyzing and conducting research, writing, and publishing. The school provides support and guidance in the practicum process, which provides excellent real-world experience and preparation for our future work."

"The NDNU Art Therapy program is invaluable and a gem in the heart of the Peninsula, offering low or no cost counseling services to the community at large. Their highly professional training program is like no other and is a gift to the entire bay area."

"I graduated from Notre Dame de Namur University. This is the best place to take Art Therapy for me. The classes, the colleagues, the professors, the training and guidance and the reputation that the college has is exceptional. As soon as I graduated, I was called for a job interview and I had good jobs in Art Therapy since then. The program is a good deal because it trains you to be a good Marriage Family Therapist as well as an Art Therapist. NDNU offers the best quality in California and around U. S. in art therapy and the faculty is very well known in the U. S. and around the world."
