The field of Intermodal Expressive Arts (EXA) has grown considerably in the last thirty years and has developed an international reputation with professional representation in many countries.

The International Network of Expressive Arts Therapy Training Centers interconnects institutes in North America, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. The establishment of graduate academic studies in EXA has also experienced a strong development.

Since 1997, there are now four major graduate programs offering studies in Expressive Arts: Lesley University in Cambridge MA, USA, the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco CA, USA, the Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, USA, and the program offered by the European Graduate School (EGS) in Saas-Fee Switzerland, presented here.
