Curriculum and Plan of Study


The Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy (BSMTx) curriculum is based on the American Music Therapy Association Professional Competencies. The courses cover musical foundations, clinical foundations, music therapy foundations, and general education. The general education courses in the BSMTx curriculum were specifically selected to meet some of the professional competencies; therefore, students should plan to take those courses rather than substituting other classes. Many of our classes include service learning or experiential learning components.

Second Degree 

Students who already hold a bachelor’s degree in a different field, but who wish to earn their music therapy credential, may do so at IUPUI through our second degree program.
