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.
