Program: Music Therapy Certificate
The post baccalaureate certificate in Music Therapy is specifically designed for those who have already acquired a degree in music and who wish now to enter the field of music therapy. The coursework is designed to enable the student to be prepared for a six-month internship leading to sitting for the national Board Certification Exam for Music Therapy. Upon completion of the program the student is awarded the Music Therapy Certificate, which will then allow the student to take the national Board Certification test so the student has the credential to practice music therapy on a national level. The American Music Therapy Association has approved this as an Equivalency Program. Additional information is available at Music Therapy FAQ.
