Music Therapy Major

A career in music therapy allows students to work as a health care professional in variety of settings such as in special education, hospitals, nursing homes, group homes, women's shelters, hospices, and behavioral health centers. You can find out more about music therapy through the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA, Welcome to the American Music Therapy Association Website) where they provide information about music therapy as a profession as well as information on AMTA-approved schools that have a music therapy major. The field of music therapy was created in the United States in 1950 and has been growing ever since, in terms of clinical practice and evidence-based research.
