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 32 months of full-time enrollment.   The  Low-Residency Mode (online w/intensive residencies)  is 9 semesters with a summer entry point.

Students engage in both DMT and CFT courses.   Students also complete DMT practicum and engage in 2 internship placements in both CFT and DMT. Supervision for DMT internship is completed by a Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist (BC-DMT). Supervision for CFT internship must be completed by an American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) 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.
