About

The Master of Music degree in Music Therapy with Undergraduate Equivalency at University of Miami is the ideal option for the individual who has already completed a bachelor’s degree in some area of music (i.e., music performance, music education, etc.) and seeks training as a music therapist.

Overview

Ultimately, this degree program is designed to prepare students for either advanced-level clinical practice, or additional opportunities in research or college teaching.

Students in this specialized Music Therapy with Undergraduate Equivalency program at University of Miami complete one year of undergraduate prerequisite courses in music, music therapy, psychology, and biology. These courses provide the student with entry-level clinical competency. In years two and three, students complete graduate level coursework as required for the Master of Music degree in Music Therapy.

The entire curriculum is built upon the clinical and research paradigm known as Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT). This model utilizes scientific evidence regarding the influence of music on human brain and behavior function to treat neurological, developmental, and medical needs. The NMT approach is becoming increasingly recognized and accepted by the medical community, which helps increase employment for our graduates.
