The Bachelor of Arts in Music Therapy

Thank you for visiting the CSUN Music Therapy web page. The CSUN Music Therapy program was established in 1984 by Professor Ron Borczon who still directs the program today.  The program leads to Bachelor of Arts degree and designed to meet the competences as laid out by the American Music Therapy Association.  Upon completion of the program you are eligible to take national board exam as given by the Certification Board for Music Therapists.  The CSUN Music Therapy program boasts a 93% first time passing rate on the test.  The program is very experiential with many in class experiences being offered by both professors and students alike. These experiences are structured so that the student can learn what it is like to be in simulated music therapy groups.     

 

Attached to the Music Therapy program is the CSUN Music Therapy Wellness Clinic. CSUN is one of the few universities in the country to offer such a clinic where there are four music therapists employed to supervise music therapy students.  The clinic has observation rooms to view music therapy sessions in action and observation is an integral part of the program.
