A degree in Music Therapy
A nationally renowned Music Therapy program
The Music Therapy program in the ASU School of Music, Dance and Theatre brings over 40 years of music and academic excellence into today’s clinical and technological healthcare environment. As a nationally renowned music therapy program, our goal at Arizona State University is to provide students with the education and development tools needed to excel in their career as a music therapist. The music therapy curriculum places an emphasis on both musical and therapeutic skill areas, while also enhancing the student’s overall understanding of the profession of music therapy.
Music therapy students study their major instrument/voice with an internationally recognized performance faculty. Music therapy students also study musical improvisation, songwriting, world music and popular music styles. Students have many opportunities to participate in performance groups. These include a top ranked orchestra, bands and choirs. In addition, the School of Music, Dance and Theatre has ethnomusicology ensembles including African Drumming, Javanese Gamelan, Mariachi and Steel Pan.
