Music therapists use music and music activities to promote health and rehabilitation for individuals of all ages with disabilities in a variety of agencies such as hospitals, schools, rehabilitation centers, and private practice settings. Students must satisfactorily complete a six-month internship at the conclusion of the required course work. Graduates of the B.S.M.T. program are eligible to sit for the national certification exam sponsored by the Certification Board for Music Therapists. Music therapy majors must work closely with an advisor to select general education courses that meet national certification requirements. Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy (B.S.M.T.) candidates have some specific general education courses in some categories.
