IMMACULATA UNIVERSITY, PA — Starting in the fall 2020 semester, Immaculata University is adding a Master of Music Therapy and Counseling to its graduate music offerings. Distinguished from the professional music therapy track, this program will allow students to pursue advanced clinical training towards dual practice, identity and credentialing in music therapy and counseling.
A 60-credit track is available for individuals with an undergraduate degree in music (or related field), but have not yet studied music therapy. A 48-credit track is designed for music therapists (MT-BC) who wish to develop advanced skills in music therapy clinical practice (these students can also pursue a dual master’s leading to a counseling-specific accredited degree in clinical mental health counseling). Both tracks are available through convenient evening and weekend intensive classes on the campus of Immaculata University.
The courses in the master’s program will meet the educational requirements necessary for students to be prepared for the Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania. In addition, students will graduate with superior core competencies within the music therapy field, which will allow them to be excellent clinicians and leaders in the field.
“As Immaculata University regularly recruits and educates students from across the country, the Master of Music Therapy and Counseling degree will ensure that students have access to more career opportunities within the mental health field, both within and beyond those typically available to the music therapy industry,” states Corey Olver, MA, MT-BC, LPC, ACS, director of music therapy program.
The Immaculata University Music Department also offers a Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy along with a Master of Arts in Music Therapy. For more information on any of these programs, call 610-647-4400, ext. 3490 or email [email protected].
