Master of Science in Music Therapy - Still Accepting Applications for Fall 2023

mt.jpgThe Molloy University Master of Science degree in music therapy (M.S. in M.T.) is the first and only music therapy graduate program on Long Island and is designed to prepare students for advanced clinical practice in music therapy and music psychotherapy, supported by studies in research, ethics and diverse models of practice. The program is offered in a hybrid format, with a combination of in-person and synchronous class meetings.

 The Graduate Music Therapy program is intended for professional music therapists, as well as musicians with degrees in related fields who are interested in using the unique power of music to promote health and well-being in the lives of children and adults.
