The interdisciplinary Expressive Arts Minor embraces the power of creative expression for the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

The ‘EXA’ program incorporates the intermodal exploration of visual art, movement, dance, creative writing, music, theater and performance to foster human wellness, growth, resilience, and social change. Coursework in the minor is intended to inform students on the multiple applications of the expressive arts in the fields of counseling and therapy, social work, education, coaching, consulting, conflict resolution and community engagement.
