The Bachelor of Arts in Music Option in Music Therapy is designed to prepare students for careers in the therapeutic applications of music (entrance audition required). Capstone experience: internship. Completion of the program qualifies students to take the national examination needed to become a Board-Certified Music Therapist.
The Music Therapy program is an evidence-based curriculum that consists of both didactic and experiential courses to help develop the creative, intellectual and intuitive skills of students. Students work through many hypothetical and real cases to develop their skills in order to successfully complete the program and reach the culminating experience of the internship. Prior to the start of the internship, the student must demonstrate significant progress toward the competencies as laid out by the American Music Therapy Association.
