Art Therapy Career Analysis

Decent Essays

I have chosen to major in art therapy at Alverno College. The area I would like to specialize in is geriatrics, more specially alzheimer’s and other dementias. Originally, I had been an education major however after doing some work in the field, I found I don’t enjoy children. Currently, I work in a nursing home and that is where I found my love of the elderly. Upon graduating with a bachelor's degree from Alverno, I would like to work in either a nursing home/assisted living facility or hospice center. In these settings, a career in the activities department would most likely occur. I plan on working for two to five years after graduating Alverno in one of those facilities. After that, I plan on applying to as well as attending graduate school.
