The following is only one source of information regarding a student’s program of study for a B.M. in Music with a concentration in Music Therapy. Note: Some courses required in the major will also fulfill requirements for the General Education Curriculum. Students should always meet with a faculty advisor for information on course scheduling, rotation, and for planning an effective and efficient program of study. Students must complete the following:

General Education Curriculum:

(See General Education Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees .)

Total Hours Required for a B.M. in Music Therapy: 124 Semester Hours


*Optional and repeatable for a maximum of four (4) credits

**Optional and repeatable for a maximum of six (6) credits

Music Majors with a Concentration in Music Therapy are required to take 12 credits of major lessons, 4 credits of secondary lessons (including voice for non-voice majors), 2 credits of class guitar, and 2 credits of class piano. Music therapy majors who can perform at a level above that of either class guitar and/or class piano may request a waiver of that class(es). In these cases music therapy majors must still use the credits required for class piano and/or class guitar for secondary lesson credits. Music Therapy majors must have a minimum of four hours of ensemble credit before they can enroll in MUS 460 – Music Therapy Internship.

Students must achieve a grade of C or higher in all Music and Music Therapy classes in order to be eligible for internship and sit for the board certification exam. Students who fail to achieve a C in a class must register for an independent study in that course during the following semester or retake it in the semester it is next offered. In addition, students will be unable to take the next sequential music therapy course. Students will be given only one opportunity to retake any Music Therapy course. If the student is unable to achieve a C grade or higher at that point, the student will be dismissed from the Music Therapy Program.
