Abstract/Description

My presentation outlines the course of my efforts to find what it would take to start a music therapy degree program at Murray State University. Music therapy is a rapidly expanding and vital profession, so the need for board-certified, thoroughly educated music therapists is increasing. I began by researching the basics of music therapy; then, I cross analyzed ten music therapy degree programs in order to pinpoint what Murray State University needs in order to offer an undergraduate music therapy degree. I am proposing a Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy degree program, and I am giving a series of presentations to various constituencies in order to ascertain the be best way to get this music therapy offered at Murray State University.
