MM - Music Therapy

Master of Music in Music Therapy

The Master of Music (M.M.) with an Area of Emphasis in Music Therapy provides in-depth study of the practice of music therapy, including research, clinical applications, and current developments in music therapy theory and practice. Coursework will address the Advanced Competencies in Music Therapy as established by the American Music Therapy Association.  Primary career opportunities for graduates of this degree program include the advanced practice of music therapy in a variety of healthcare and educational settings, and teaching music therapy at the undergraduate level. The degree also prepares graduates for future study in music therapy at the doctoral level.


Music Therapy Equivalency Program

Applicants who do not have an undergraduate degree in music therapy and are not Board Certified must first be admitted to the Music Therapy Equivalency Program. Upon successful completion of at least two semesters of equivalency coursework and 90 hours of pre-internship practicum experiences, students may submit an application for the Master’s Degree Program. Qualified applicants will be granted admission pending successful completion of remaining coursework, pre-internship and internship experiences. The Equivalency Program is separate from the Master’s Degree, and the required undergraduate-level coursework hours may not be applied toward the graduate degree. Qualified students, with permission of the department, may be allowed to take some graduate level coursework in conjunction with the equivalency courses. Up to nine graduate hours taken as an equivalency student may be credited to the graduate degree.
