"The Art Therapy program is the only one in the Bay Area and it is a great program to become an art therapist and/or a marriage and family therapist. The program provides many classes that cover diverse topics in the field. Moreover, NDNU Art Therapy program has PhD which is rare, and it gives more opportunities to meet experts in art therapy. All of the art therapy professors have their own interests and it leads students to find their own interests!"

"I'm currently in my second semester of the Art Therapy program at NDNU and I absolutely love it. The quality of the professors is wonderful as they are engaged and truly want the best for their students. The Art Therapy program has provided an amazing opportunity for me to gain knowledge about the field through experienced teachers and the curriculum. This program has a large impact on our surrounding community and teaches us invaluable lessons for our future careers. I look forward to advancing in this program while I continue to engage and build relationships with my peers and professors."

"I am an Art Therapy Doctorate first year student. NDNU Art Therapy Doctorate degree program has provided me with both practical and theoretical knowledges appropriate as doctorate level study. The faculty members has been very supportive in guiding all aspects of learning experience. The curriculum is well designed to provide and stimulate students learning experience as well. Knowledge and experience from NDNU ATD will definitely advance my career. I will recommend this program to any future students considering advanced education, doctorate level, in Art Therapy."

"Notre Dame de Namur University provided me the opportunity to prove to myself that I can make an impact in the world. I studied art therapy and marriage and family therapy at NDNU. I was given the opportunity to make and impact in our homeless community. This experience has led me to continue to work with the Bay Area homeless population. In addition to this work I represented the art therapy department through NDNU's student senate. I feel that this opportunity has given me the confidence to serve as a board member for our Northern California Art Therapy Association (NORCATA). Through the support or NorCATA and our northern California art therapist community I have been able to be part of the recovery process related to the Paradise fires in Butte county that took place last year. NDNU has given me the confidence to go out into our world and make a difference through the use of art therapy. I was not a traditional student, I was in my thirties and had children (one who is disabled). NDNU never made me feel out of place, too old or too burdened by family life. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to educate myself and make a difference in the world that NDNU gave me! It is my hope that they will be able to continue helping people achieve their education goals."

"NDNU's Art Therapy/MFT program in unmatched. The program has some of the best, most qualified professors I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The amazing faculty truly make the entire program what it is. They work so incredibly hard in order to provide us with the best education possible, while honoring the university and its values. They care deeply about all of their students and set us up for success. Professors are always available and prioritize students, our wellbeing, and our education. I can't imagine being in any other program."

"I am proud of my education at NDNU and was well equipped for a future as an MFT and art therapist. The professors are amazing mentors who deeply care for their students and take pride in the rigorous education they provide in psychology and art therapy. The program has relationships with agencies, schools, and Hospital settings throughout the bay that has served as a path from internship to career. I love the program and believe in it so much that I have recently applied and gotten accepted into the PhD art therapy program. Not only am I able to have the career I want, but my passion for the field has been fostered in ways I never thought possible!"
