APA Style

Need to cite your sources? Use APA for all Music Therapy coursework. 

About APA Style

APA is one of the most important citation styles, used not only in Music Therapy but across all of the social sciences and other disciplines, including: Psychology, Social Work, Business, Marketing, and more.

References are made through in-text, parenthetical notation and a full reference list at the end of the paper.

See a librarian if you need help using this or any citation style.

Writing Center

The Writing Center at Augsburg University is a place where students can work with tutors on written assignments and find useful information and resources about writing.

During Augsburg's COVID-19 modified operations plan, all writing support is provided through the Online Writing Center, which allows you to video conference with a peer tutor and receive 1:1 feedback on your writing. The Center uses a combination of Zoom for the video conference and Google Docs to share your draft with the tutor. The online tutor can help with anything from brainstorming to improving your argument to integrating sources to clarifying sentence structures.

The Center's website offers a variety of useful web resources and handouts to help you refine your writing skills. 

For more information, please contact Writing Center Director Jennifer Forsthoefel at
