A Creative Arts Therapy Program embedded in a psychotherapeutic orientation prepares students educated in art or music to be effective and ethical professionals specializing in the fields of Art Therapy or Music Therapy. The music therapy specialization has two tracks: a comprehensive 60 credit hour program as well as a 48 credit hour advanced standing option for students who already hold a bachelor’s degree in music therapy or its equivalent. The programs are committed to developing people who are capable of applying intellectual strength, ethics, and aesthetic values in the treatment of individuals, groups, and families. The M.S. in Creative Arts Therapy is a New York State licensure-qualifying program, fulfilling the educational component required to become a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist.
The Music Therapy program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music and approved by the American Music Therapy Association.
