Bella Insch, Art Therapy Student Ms Bella Insch

Course of study:
Masters of Art Therapy 2011

What made you decide to undertake Postgraduate studies?

I have always wanted to become an art therapist and knew that I would have to study further to be able to work in the field. I am passionate about art's ability to communicate beyond language.

What pathway did you take to La Trobe?

I have an undergraduate degree in fine arts, majoring in sculpture and a diploma in diversional therapy. I have worked in community development, disability and aged care using art.

What made you decide to enrol at La Trobe?

It has a great national reputation for its health sciences, especially the art therapy dept.

Where do you see the course taking you – do you have a specific job or career path in mind, or maybe further studies? Do you think your course gives you good career opportunities?

I would like to work in a diverse range of communities including indigenous health, restorative justice and youth mental health. I can also see lots of potential for art therapy in aged care.

What do you like most about your campus?

The library, great online resources, the co-op bookshop, the block café and the Buddhist club.

Are there any other comments you’d like to make about your course, or about La Trobe generally?

 I couldn't recommend the course enough!
