Program Overview

The Master’s program in Dance/Movement Therapy at Antioch University New England (AUNE) was one of the first to be approved  by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA). Students can become registered Dance/Movement Therapists (R-DMT) upon completion of the master’s degree requirements. The Concentration in CFT also meets education requirements in many states for licensure as a Couple and Family Therapist upon completion of postgraduate clinical and supervision hour requirements commensurate with state licensing regulations. See licensure in CFT, above.

The  MA is designed to be completed in three years of full-time enrollment.  On-Campus Mode for fall or spring entry points is planned to be completed 8 semesters of full -time enrollment and the  Low-Residency Mode (online w/intensive residencies)  in 9 semesters with a summer entry point.

Students engage in both DMT and CFT courses, pre-practicum and practicum work throughout their first two years. Field work/internships must be supervised by a BC-DMT  or CFT approved supervisor. Students work closely with their academic advisors and Director of Clinical Training to provide support for successful completion of coursework and field work. However, it remains the responsibility for each  student to ensure they are eligible for licensing/credentialing in the specific state(s) in which they intend to practice.
