Masters in Music Therapy

The Department of Music launched its MMus (Music Therapy) programme in February 
1999. This is the first music therapy training course in South Africa to be approved by 
the Health Professionals Council of South Africa. 
PLEASE NOTE: Since 2010, The MMus (Music Therapy) program has been offered in modular format.
This is in order to accommodate students who wish to do the course, but cannot relocate to Pretoria from various parts of South Africa. This enables students to complete their clinical internship, course work and dissertation from their home base. Three compulsory intensive 9 day block sessions are held each year for the two year period. Students are also required to travel to the University for examinations at the conclusion of each year of study. The modular programme does NOT equate to parttime study. It is a two year FULL-TIME academic program.
