Art Therapy Licensure and Certification
New York State requires all creative arts therapists practicing in the state to hold a license (LCAT) or limited permit to practice. Graduates from Hofstra’s program are eligible to follow the guidelines of the New York State Office of the Professions to apply for a limited permit in creative arts therapy, the first step toward gaining a license as a creative arts therapist in New York State. Additionally, students from this program will be able to follow the guidelines of the Art Therapy Credentials Board and apply to become a registered art therapist after required supervisory hours are completed.
