About

The Master of Music Therapy (MMT) degree from Appalachian State University is designed to prepare board-certified or board-eligible music therapists for advanced practice in music therapy. In cooperation with the academic advisor, each student selects a specialty area and elective courses that will help meet individual career objectives.

Overview

Specialty areas include Addictions, Expressive Arts, Gerontology, Health Care, Mental Health, Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities, and the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music. In consultation with the advisor, the student also may design a unique specialty area.

This Master of Music Therapy (MMT) degree from Appalachian State University, housed in the Hayes School of Music, is designed to meet the standards established by the American Music Therapy Association and the National Association of Schools of Music for the Master of Music Therapy degree.Appalachian also offers two additional options:

  • Music Therapy Equivalency – designed for students who hold undergraduate degrees in fields other than music therapy and who wish to prepare for professional certification as a music therapist. The Equivalency program leads to eligibility to take the national music therapy certification examination administered by the Certification Board for Music Therapists. Equivalency applicants whose bachelor’s degree is outside of music will apply for admission to the Bachelor of Music in music therapy as a transfer student.
  • Combined Equivalency and Master of Music Therapy – designed for students who hold baccalaureate degrees in music, but not music therapy. Those students may apply for admission to a combined Equivalency and Master of Music Therapy program. In this program, students complete both requirements for eligibility to sit for the examination administered by the Certification Board for Music Therapists and Master's degree requirements. Students in the combined Equivalency/Master's program may take only equivalency courses in the first year of enrollment.
