Concordia University offers two graduate programs in music therapy. Both programs are approved by the Canadian Association of Music Therapists (CAMT).

Graduate Diploma in Music Therapy

The Graduate Diploma is designed for students wanting to start new careers in music therapy.  Students with no formal music therapy training but with strong music, psychology, and health backgrounds are provided the necessary education and training to start work as credentialed music therapists immediately upon graduation.

Music Therapy MA

The Music Therapy MA is intended for students who already have credentials as music therapists. The MA offers opportunity for advanced professional training, specialization, and research for practitioners who want to enrich their current métier. There are two three-day residencies at Concordia included in the program.

Since 2020, Concordia’s Music Therapy MA moved to an online format on eConcordia. This low-residency online course allows students to continue working and living wherever they choose, while still advancing their studies.
