The music therapy program at Slippery Rock University prepares students to work as a healthcare professional in the field of music therapy. Students in the SRU music therapy program will have an opportunity to work with a variety of clinical populations, engage in experiential learning, and study evidence-based research in the field of music therapy. Music therapists work in a variety of settings, including special education classroom, hospices, nursing homes, hospitals, shelters, prisons, and group homes.
Successful completion of music therapy coursework and a 6-month internship will make students elegible to take the board-certification exam in music therapy (www.cbmt.org).
