Music Therapy Overview

The Mary Pappert School of Music offers several options for those seeking degrees in music therapy, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. These programs consist of traditional undergraduate and graduate degrees and options to combine or obtain master's-level equivalencies. 

Undergraduate Options

Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy (BSMT)

Our undergraduate program is your gateway to a career as a board-certified music therapist. Your four years of on-campus study will prepare you for a clinical internship that will complete the degree requirements, making you eligible to become a board-certified music therapist.
