Music Therapy develops a clients’ potential abilities and enhances their quality of life by using music to address physical, emotional, intellectual or learning challenges.
As a student, you will participate in a variety of group and individual music therapy placements in our on-site clinics and throughout the community with a diverse set of clients including those with learning disabilities, autism, special needs, adolescents and geriatrics.
Because music therapists communicate with clients through music, they must have excellent musicianship and musical sensitivity. Nearly half of the required courses are in music, and include instrumental or vocal study, musical skills and ensemble work. Our program also features courses in clinical improvisation, case studies, therapeutic theories, and two years of group and one-on-one clinical placements on campus and in the community. You will also take courses in developmental, abnormal, clinical and social psychology.
