Music therapists use music to impact the lives of people with diverse needs and backgrounds. Music therapists are licensed by state agencies. This pre-professional program is designed to prepare students to enter Masters Equivalency programs in music therapy. Each university with a Masters Equivalency program in music therapy is different. These recommended courses correspond to the requirements for the music therapy equivalency program at the University of Iowa. It is recommended that students work with their advisor to research the graduate school of their choice and adjust the recommended courses based on that choice.
(In addition to the music major, 8 credits of music courses (MUS226, 246 & 261), including 1 credit of ensemble and 2 credits of lessons)
