You’ll begin this intensive program in the summer of your first year with a three-week immersion. You’ll join a small cohort of students from the U.S. and abroad as you explore the culture of Chicago, the college and our department. Your first-year coursework will include Laban movement analysis, social and cultural foundations, human development, psychotherapy and dance/movement therapy theory, among other topics. By the end of your first year, you’ll identify your interest area and will work with our clinical placement coordinator to find a practicum that makes sense for you. You’ll complete this practicum over the summer of your second year, in which you’ll be supervised by an academic, board certified dance/movement therapist.
