Postacademic Clinical Training

After four years, you will complete a half a year of clinical training. Through experiential learning, you will apply what you learned in the classroom to clinical practice under supervision. This will further prepare you to take the national examination of the Certification Board for Music Therapists and apply for professional certification.


Internships can help you get your foot in the door of an industry and allow you to apply classroom learning to the real world. Temple can help you find the right hands-on opportunity.

Connect with your interests, meet employers and pursue meaningful internships through the Temple University Career Center.
