Southwestern College provides graduate students a rigorous curriculum as Counselors and Art Therapists-in-training. Success here requires time management, focus, determination, and passion. Yes, we read countless books. Yes, we write many papers. These are no doubt important skills for the future, but something that makes Southwestern special is the attention given to nurturing our creativity, in addition to the aforementioned left-brained functions. Classes at Southwestern College (whether you want to be an Art Therapist or not) frequently encourage us to integrate our knowledge and conceptualizations through artistic mediums. Take some time to soak in the inspiring work of current students:
