We’ve designed the creative arts program to be an ideal double-major for any LVC students interested in the arts. LVC’s Suzanne H.

Art Therapy and Museum Studies
If you’d like to specialize your studies within the Creative Arts B.A., our concentrations in Art Therapy and Museum & Gallery Professions focus on equipping you with professional skills you can take into your career or on to graduate school.
The Art Therapy specialization provides educational opportunities for students to work with licensed art therapists at the Lebanon VA Medical Center and Wellspan. For Museum & Gallery Professions students, the Gallery Internship Program provides you with on-the-job experience of what goes into curating exhibits and running museums and galleries.
Intersections of Academics & Art
Housed in a former church in the gothic-revival style, the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery hosts five to six exhibitions a year, with loans from major national and regional art museums, galleries, and collectors. Exhibitions are made possible by The Friends of the Gallery, the Gallery’s membership group, as well as other generous sponsors.
