Departmental Admission Requirements

Students in this unit are admitted directly into their degree program.

Degree Requirements

The Music Therapy curriculum meets the competency requirements of the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA). Students must complete a minimum of 1200 hours of clinical training which includes at least 180 hours in pre-internship experiences and at least 900 hours in internship experiences. Students completing the Music Therapy curriculum are eligible to take the examination to become a Board Certified Music Therapist, offered by the Certification Board for Music Therapists.

A person who already has a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution and who wishes to become a music therapist may take the courses not already taken that are required for music therapy certification, known as “equivalency” courses since they provide the equivalent of an undergraduate degree. The music therapy equivalency program leads to eligibility to apply to become a Board Certified Music Therapist but does not lead to a degree. Specific course requirements, based on the student’s transcript and experiences, are determined in conjunction with the Director of Music Therapy.

Students must demonstrate experience and competence in the use of percussion instruments and in the use of computers and music as appropriate for music therapists.

Minimum Total Hours, BM with Emphasis in Music Therapy with a track in Jazz Studies143
1

Students are required to take MUH 214 African-American Music - AH, D1 and MUH 205 Music in World Cultures - SB, D2. In addition, Music Therapy majors should consider COMM 115 Interpersonal Skills - OC to satisfy the Oral Communication content.

2

MUH courses will not be accepted as music electives or cardinal core courses with the exception of ANTH 205/MUH 205 and PAS 214/MUH 214.

3

Students who do not pass the computer-based Fundamentals Test prior to the beginning of the fall semester are required to enroll in MUS 91 Fundamentals of Music I for 0 credit concurrently with MUS 141 Theory I.  Students who do not pass MUS 141, and students who enter the School of Music in January and do not place into MUS 142 Theory II, must enroll in MUS 92 Musicianship I for the spring semester.  Credits for MUS 92 do not count toward the degree.

4

Strings take Section 01, others solely dependent on the ensemble audition. Jazz Studies track students take six 1-hour courses of Jazz Ensemble plus two 1-hour courses of other Major Ensemble.

5

If the Applied Principal is piano, Piano Class is replaced with 3 hours of electives.

6

Students will take the Piano Proficiency Examination at the end of MUS 231.  Any student not completing the Piano Proficiency Examination will be required to take MUS 232 until the proficiency exam requirement is complete.
 

Students must be enrolled continuously in Piano Class until their requirement has been completed.  Those who pass the Piano Proficiency Examination before the end of the third semester of Piano Class may replace the requirement with electives or with secondary piano if faculty load permits.  Entering students who have a background in piano may register for MUS 297 Piano Proficiency for one semester with approval of the Keyboard Area.

The internship is done after all other music therapy course work has been completed. The American Music Therapy Association requires that a student receive a grade of C- or better in all music therapy courses in order to be eligible for the internship. It must be completed within 24 months of completion of music therapy course work.  However, the School of Music will not accept work below a C (not a C-minus) in a major subject.

Music Therapy students will require a C (not C-minus) grade in order to pass Supportive Area courses.

Music Therapy degree students may substitute Voice study at the functional level, MUS 133, for MUS 227 Voice Class at the discretion of the voice faculty.

The Bachelor of Music Therapy (BM) program

prepares students to meet the requirements for certification and/or licensure.  If you plan to pursue professional licensure or certification you should first determine your state’s criteria for examination and licensure to see how/if our program meets those requirements prior to enrollment. We recommend that you also contact your state’s licensing board directly to verify that the requirements have not changed recently and to answer any questions especially those regarding additional requirements beyond the degree. 

More information about certification or licensure is available at the following website:  https://louisville.edu/oapa/licensure-information (you may search by school or by the name of the program then click on 'View Details' to display the information).

For programs with an online option, more information about certification or licensure is available here: http://louisville.edu/online/About-Us (please scroll down near the bottom of the page and click on the licensing disclosures tab).
