The Music Therapy program provides the training to pass the Music Therapy Board Certification Examination.
Music Therapy majors are accepted by audition as instrumental, piano or voice minors. After successful completion of all HU academic requirements (including the Piano Proficiency examination prior to their 7th semester), students must complete a Music Therapy Clinical Internship at an AMTA approved site. Approval from the program coordinator is required to begin the Internship, after which the student will be qualified to sit for the Music Therapy Board Certification Examination.
Applicants with a baccalaureate degree in music who seek admission to Music Therapy program will have customized programs designed that fulfill all the requirements for the Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy. An audition, transfer of credits (up to 96 credits of courses with the grade of "C" or better from an accredited 4-year institution), and consultation with the program coordinator are required for acceptance as a transfer student or second bachelor's degree candidate.
A Senior Recital will be performed with permission of the student's performance instructor. Senior recital and successful completion of internship are required for graduation.
