Will I be able to major in music and minor in psychology? If so what is the college process for that and how long will it take to accomplish?
I'm 10th grade and need help to set a career plan. I want to be a musician or musical therapist or teacher of sum sort. And the college i plan on going to is Berklee college of music. As of right now I sing, write my own songs, and produce music/beats for it to be recorded.
I would suggest you do the best you can to narrow down your goal. The learning and career track for a music therapist is much more straightforward than a performing career. It would typically be something you’d see in a school that focuses in the medical field, but not always.
I mostly mention this because you mention Berklee as your school of choice. I assume you’ve been warned, admission to Berklee is HIGHLY competitive, and requires a performance audition. Unless you are an exceptional musician now, you may find admission to be very difficult. Also, Berklee doesn’t have a music therapy degree listed on their website.
I would suggest you expand your choices for possible schools, while narrowing down what it is you want to do. Best of luck.
Essentially, with an equivalency you knock out your music theory, ear training, music history, etc and all your English, math, sciences, etc and get your Bachelor’s degree. You would then transfer all of those credits and only take your core Music Therapy courses, clinical practicum, and internship to then be eligible to sit for boards.
