 About Our Music Therapy Program 



SRU's Music Therapy Program

We pride ourselves in our student-focused and music-focused approach to teaching and learning about music therapy here at SRU.  Our music therapy program is unique in both our philosophy and approach--we use a strength-based approach that focuses on client empowerment and also examine issues of diversity and oppression that may limit a client's ability to reach their full potential.

Students in SRU's Music Therapy Program can expect to have ample opportunties for experiential learning (students have 6 semester of supervised clinical training prior to their internship) as well as scholarly exploration of music therapy theory, philosophy, and competencies.
