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?
