B.M. in Music Therapy

The Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy uses an interdisciplinary approach to develop knowledge in music theory, history and performance while providing focused training in music therapy, research and psychology. Most students also minor in Psychology. Six clinical practicum placements prepare students for a wide variety of internships, job settings and client populations. An internship, taken off-site after senior level coursework, fulfills the comprehensive clinical training requirements to sit for the exam administered by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (MT-BC).

Students intending to major in the Music Therapy program must perform an audition on their principal instrument (includes Voice) as outlined in the Required Undergraduate Audition Repertoire section of this website, interview with the music therapy faculty, and complete a theory and aural skills examination.
