The AATA is thrilled to announce that three additional art therapy masters programs have been approved for accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). A warm congratulations to the art therapy programs at Antioch University Seattle, Florida State University, and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods-College! In their January meeting, the CAAHEP Board approved the accreditation recommendation by the Accreditation Council for Art Therapy Education (ACATE) for these programs. Currently five art graduate programs have received initial accreditation, with Albertus Magnus College and Edinboro University having been approved in the fall of 2018.
The AATA is proud to sponsor the accreditation process through CAAHEP, the largest programmatic accreditor of the health sciences professions, managed by the ACATE. Thank you, ACATE members for leading us through this transition. And thank you, program directors and faculty for your hard work throughout the accreditation process. We look forward to announcing more program accreditations in the coming months!
