Music Therapy Program at Carroll University

Carroll University's new Music Therapy program offers students an education in the basic core subjects of music, psychology, and medicine, as well as training in clinical settings. Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to take the Board Certification Exam to become therapists helping to heal people in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation clinics, schools and more.

Students receive instruction in guitar, piano, and voice, music history, songwriting, improvisation and conducting, as well as psychology, biology, anatomy and physiology, and specialized courses in music therapy techniques.

Examples of Credentialed Music Therapy Work
