The Combined Master's Equivalency Program

Applicants who hold a bachelor's degree in another area of music (e.g., performance, music education, etc.) but who are not certified in music therapy are eligible to apply for the combined master's equivalency program. This program integrates undergraduate courses in music therapy required for entry-level certification with the master's program, and entry-level and advanced courses are taken concurrently. Applicants who hold undergraduate degrees outside of music, or applicants who do not have at least 60 undergraduate credits in music or the equivalence are not eligible for admission to this combined program, but must instead apply for the bachelor's degree. PLEASE NOTE, THE MASTER'S EQUIVALENCY PROGRAM IS NOT OFFERED THROUGH DISTANCE LEARNING, I.E., STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THIS PROGRAM MUST RESIDE IN THE PHILADELPHIA AREA.

The following are undergraduate courses required for entry-level certification. These courses are taken in addition to and concurrent with the 36 credits required for the master's. Advanced standing may be given for courses in these areas taken at other institutions. The combined program usually takes 5 semesters.
