Music Therapy (MM)

The MM program in music therapy provides music therapists with graduate-level study in the theory and practice of music therapy. The program fosters an expanded research perspective in music therapy, emphasizing community partnerships, community-based music therapy program development and external funding, that culminates in a graduate clinical project or thesis. Candidates for the program must hold the credential Music Therapist-Board Certified or a similar international music therapy credential. Candidates for the program must hold undergraduate degrees in either music or music therapy. Applicants who have completed a four-year Bachelor of Music in music therapy and received board certification from the Certification Board for Music Therapists qualify for the two-year track; applicants with an undergraduate degree in music (Bachelor of Music or Bachelor of Arts in music), but not in music therapy, qualify for the three-year track.
