Music therapy is an established health profession that uses music within a therapeutic setting to address the needs of children and adults with disabilities or illnesses. Highly trained and nationally Board-Certified music therapists use music interventions in a focused and concentrated manner to bring about healing and change, building on the inherent qualities of music to influence physical, emotional, cognitive and social responses.
Our undergraduate degree consists of four years of coursework followed by an internship, and leads to Board Certification. In addition to the core music therapy and foundational music courses, you will be able to take advantage of other diverse course offerings at Pacific. Students can pursue coursework in psychology, biology, special education, physical therapy, sports science or speech language pathology.
This program requires an interview with faculty. Interviews are conducted on the same day as the live audition or by telephone if submitting a video-recorded audition.
