"I appreciate and am so grateful for my masters experience in the Art therapy/psychotherapy department at NDNU. I gathered a solid clinical base and an expertise in the field of art therapy. The professors were all knowledgeable and passionate about the field."

"Before attending NDNU I felt questionable about my chosen path in life. I never felt as if I fit into the communities attached to my chosen majors at my previous campus, therefore I had my doubts going into my masters program. Those doubts vanished the day I attended open house at NDNU and the first day stepped foot into the Art Therapy program to attend class. I was welcomed with such warmth and open arms by my professors and fellow colleagues. It is at NDNU I realized that Art therapy is the path that I want to be on in life and it is a path that I hope to continue on with the help of NDNU."

"I graduated from NDNU (dual majored in Marriage and Family therapy and Art Therapy). The program is great if you're interested in becoming a dual-licensed Marriage and Family Therapy and Art Therapist. The program offered: support from staff, professors and peers, engaging ways to use art in therapy sessions, an inviting community that has stayed with me through my transition from student to therapist, smaller class sizes that make learning and making connections easier, and encourages creativity, self-discovery, and self-growth."

"I highly recommend the art therapy psychology program to anyone with an interest in the field. I gained so much from the program, and I have been sharing the tools I’ve learned with clients throughout the Bay Area for the past 10+ years. I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of the program and the way it prepared me to enter the workforce. I use skills I learned at NDNU on a daily basis with my clients and am so glad there is a program like this one out there. A+++"

"I am a pediatric hematology/oncology Art Therapist at Stanford Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, CA. I have my dream career all thanks to the Art Therapy Psychology Department. The dedication of the faculty in the Art Therapy Psychology department is unparalleled. I am proud to be an alumni. Thank you to all my professors: Dr. Gwen Sanders, Dr. Jo Wallace, Dr. Richard Carolan and Dr. Arnell Etherington. You are valued and invaluable. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!"

"The art therapy psychology department stands out as a program of distinction, and has gained local recognition at agencies and schools in the field of mental and behavioral health, not just for its stellar education and training toward MFT and LPC licensure, but for its additional specialization in art therapy. It provides a balance of rigorous academic learning with hands-on, experiential fieldwork that has better prepared me to enter the field, and sets me apart from other applicants with similar degrees of study. In my Traineeship, I have encountered few other MFT students who possess the same depth of applied knowledge in theory and practice, methods, mechanisms of change, and cross-cultural learning. I am so grateful to this program and the combined knowledge, wisdom, and experience of the directors, advisors, professors, and staff."

"My time in the Art Therapy Psychology department is filled with fond memories of learning, growth, community service, and strong community. The professors are top-notch and formed such a close knit community that many students and staff are still in touch, which is so helpful when it comes to career networking. It’s incredibly exciting to graduate from the first University to have a PhD program in Art Therapy in the country."

"NDNU professors are leaders in their field, and share a tremendous amount of applicable experience with their students. The academics are skewed heavily, as it is in many counseling programs, towards self reflection and personal growth of the students as therapists."
