Ursuline's ATC program is very unique in that it offers the opportunity to earn both the art therapy and the counseling aspects of the degree. Having the combined program allows those who graduate to integrate the two professions, and draw on the skills from each portion to become the best clinician he or she can be (it's also easier to get hired!) The combined program gives us a much more expansive variety of resources, and teachers with more diverse experiences and educations to draw from. This gives us the foundation and the resources to figure out each of our professional identities in a deeper and more profound way. Although good grades are obviously important, the focus seems to be more on helping us really understand and integrate the material, and good grades tend to follow. It is a very intense program, but all of the staff and teachers are extremely dedicated to the well-being and success of the students, and will bend over backwards to help all of us get what we want and need out of this program.
