                              organizations, arts, and community settings.
                              Master of Science in Art Therapy: The Art Therapy program is grounded in a profound
                              belief	in	the	healing	power	of	the	arts	and	creative	process.	Students	are	offered	a	depth-oriented

                              their	lives,	thus	preparing	them	to	help	others.	Art	therapy	is	a	profession	founded	on	art	and	
                              psychology,	and	applicants	must	have	sufficient	undergraduate	preparation	in	these	areas.	
                              The Art Therapy program is accredited by the American Art Therapy Association.

                              qualitative	proficiency.	Emphasizing	leadership,	ethics	and	communication	skills	within	a	global	
                              environment,	the	program	will	develop	professional,	competent	and	ethical	leaders	and	managers	
                              meeting the needs and expectations of employers.

                              Clinical Mental Health, Community, and School Counseling. Each concentration prepares
                              students	with	the	theoretical	knowledge	and	practical	skills	to	work	effectively	in	community	
                              and clinical mental health agency settings or schools. Toward that end, the curriculum
                              includes	content	about	the	mental	health	movement,	professional	identity	issues,	structures	
                              and	operations	of	professional	organizations,	diversity	issues,	ethical	issues,	counseling	theories	
                              and	techniques,	clinical	assessment	and	diagnosis,	co-occurring	disorders	and	ways	and	means

                              schools.	Post-masters	certificates	are	also	available	in	each	of	the	three	concentrations.

                              is to strengthen the academic background of dietetic practitioners, so that these men and women
                              may excel as practitioners. Because the degree is in dietetics, not nutritional science or food

                              dietetics from a program accredited by the American Dietetic Association (ADA) or the

                              with	a	breadth	of	graduate	level	writing	instruction	in	creative	writing,	professional	writing,	or	
                              both. The curriculum draws on the philosophical tradition that stresses the importance of
                              thought,	expression	and	ethical	action	in	society.	Advanced,	specialized	writing	courses	also

                              The	program	provides	professional	education	resulting	in	skilled	hands-on	practitioners	who	
                              are client-centered and holistic in their approach to health care. The program emphasizes a
                              commitment	to	ethical	practice,	professional	growth,	advocacy	and	leadership	based	on	
                              professional	and	personal	values.	The	Occupational	Therapy	program	is	accredited	by	the
