Master of Music Therapy (one and two-year streams)
The Master of Music Therapy program is music-centred, humanistic and integrated: theoretical aspects are incorporated into the development of clinical techniques, both musical and humanistic. In addition to academic course requirements, each program involves clinical practica, experiential music therapy group sessions, and a major graduation paper.
Students learn advanced clinical and musical skills as well as different modes of inquiry for qualitative music therapy research. The program provides a forum for students' self-exploration and personal development as clinicians. Connections are made between the interpretive analysis of therapeutic and musical processes, and musical and verbal countertransference. The program includes a range of clinical topics in order to support students' developing research questions and enhance their clinical work. Upon graduation, students are prepared to enter doctoral studies or clinical practice.
