Graduate Music Therapy
The Graduate Music Therapy Department offers programs that prepare students to practice music therapy at an advanced level, with a special emphasis on music-centered psychotherapy.
The department offers two programs:
The 60-credit Master of Arts provides a comprehensive program of education and training for students who have completed an undergraduate degree in a related field (e.g. music, music education, psychology, etc.) and wish to become Board-Certified Music Therapists (MT-BC).
The 48-credit Master of Arts provides advanced theoretical, clinical and musical knowledge and skills for those who already have the MT-BC credential and wish to develop advanced clinical practice skills, with a special emphasis on music-centered psychotherapy.
Immaculata University has a long tradition of preparing students for careers as music therapists, nurses, and mental health clinicians in a variety of institutions, organizations, and agencies dedicated to the educational, vocational, social, physical and psychological development of the person.
