Master of Science in Counselor Education: Rehabilitation Counseling Track

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Master of Science in Counselor Education: Rehabilitation Counseling Track prepares individuals for rehabilitation counseling positions in a variety of settings, including state vocational rehabilitation agencies, independent living centers, community rehabilitation programs, alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs, mental health centers, insurance companies, schools, private rehabilitation companies, and other private non-profit rehabilitation programs. Many of these settings offer rehabilitation counselors opportunities to specialize in working with individual disability groups such as those with learning disabilities, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, mental illness, substance abuse, epilepsy and others. The program meets all requirements as outlined by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) and prepares students for Certification in Rehabilitation Counseling (CRC). The program emphasizes the blending of research and theory with practical applied experience. It also emphasizes and reflects the urban and multicultural nature of our community, as well as general trends within the rehabilitation counseling profession. Independent study courses are available to allow students to pursue specialized interests and needs.

The prospective student should be advised that a substantial amount of time is spent in fieldwork to meet practicum and internship requirements. The practicum requirement is the equivalent of one workday per week spent in a field placement during one academic semester. The internship is the equivalent of a full-time position (five days per week) for the period of one academic semester. The student should plan for this fieldwork to be during the day, rather than during evening hours, as the field experiences must be completed in a rehabilitation setting.
