Music Therapy, MM

The MM program in music therapy provides students with graduate-level study in the theory, practice and research of music therapy. There is a two-year track for people who have completed either the undergraduate music therapy degree or its equivalent and who are board-certified or hold a similar international music therapy credential. Additionally, ASU offers a three-year track for people who have an undergraduate degree in music but not in music therapy.

The master's degree program fosters an expanded research perspective in music therapy, emphasizing community partnerships and program development with a concentration in the student's area of choice, drawing from a number of possible options. Cognate areas include counseling and counseling psychology, special education, gerontology, social work, audiology and speech-language, or other areas of choice from the many options. The program culminates in either a clinical project or a thesis.
