Music Therapy Internships

Music therapy is an interdisciplinary field that utilizes music and related arts as a therapeutic tool to promote health and well-being. A career in this field can be rewarding and fulfilling; students may pursue either a bachelor’s degree in music therapy or earn the equivalent, known as the Music Therapy Equivalency Certificate.

The equivalency degree program offers the same coursework as a bachelor’s degree in music, plus courses to prepare students for national board certification. Topics range from human behavior and psychology to music history and other specializations.

Students pursuing the Music Therapist degree must complete a 6-month internship. This internship serves to give students practical experience and prepare them for life as a music therapist.

Internships in music therapy are usually coordinated through a university music department, though some facilities may have their own music therapy department. The AMTA National Roster of Internship Programs provides an invaluable list of all facilities offering music therapy internships – making it an invaluable resource for prospective interns.
