Our faculty are committed to mentoring you in your growth as a music therapist and in helping you deepen and broaden your understanding of what it means to use music therapeutically in a diverse, pluralistic society. The M.A. in music therapy prepares music therapists to work effectively within a multicultural environment and enhances their current work be it in private practice, medical settings, nursing homes, mental health facilities or populations experiencing cultural changes or mass trauma. The core program deepens the theoretical, philosophical and ethical frameworks of music therapy that not only inform practice but also provide support for important advocacy roles within the healthcare environment. Students in this program will also receive the BMGIM Level I training. The capstone course is MU699 which is the final writing and defense of the your research project.
