Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy
A career in music therapy allows individuals to combine a love of music with a sincere interest in working with people. Credentialed music therapists use music as a tool to provide successful, motivating music experiences within a therapeutic environment. The music therapy program at Elizabethtown College is a competency-based curriculum that provides a comprehensive, personalized education. The integrated coursework effectively develops students' musicianship skills, knowledge base concerning a variety of different clinical/therapeutic needs, and core music therapy clinical skills. Students graduating from the program are in excellent standing when applying for their internships and jobs.
The extensive clinical opportunities at Elizabethtown College provide a wide range of hands-on experiences that assist students in combining their knowledge and skills to plan and conduct effective music therapy sessions. Students complete six semesters of clinical experiences on and off-campus in a variety of settings, each session supervised by a board certified music therapist. Seniors also have the opportunity to work with additional clients from the community within the on-campus clinic.
