Program Overview

Program Description:

Learn Music Therapy in China on this two-week long summer study abroad program. Through visits to hospitals, clinics, musical venues, conservatories, and community organizations that provide health related care, students experience the interplay of music and healing practices in China. Students also engage in direct dialogue with Chinese music therapists and other rehabilitation therapists.

A highlight of the program includes volunteering at a burn camp in Chongqing--a free camp designed for children ages 6-18 who have experienced burns, but do not have access to outpatient treatment. The camp helps children develop communication and social skills, confidence, psychological well-being, and physical wound healing.

Undergradate and graduate level courses are available. Students will complete a practicum, and additional travel to local attractions are included in the program. 

Setting Description:
Students will stay in hotels while traveling, and modest guest lodging at Chongqing Burn camp for the week of volunteering.
$5,539 USD. Costs will vary depending on graduate or undergraduate courses selected. Program Fee includes: international airfare from Minneapolis, air and ground transportation in China, all lodging, most meals, all program activities.
