Program Description:

Our MA in Counseling: Specialization in Rehabilitation Counseling program prepares clinicians to improve quality of life for individuals who face physical, developmental, and emotional challenges. With the need for
specialized rehabilitation counselors expected to grow rapidly over the next eight years, our graduates are well prepared to empower populations such as the elderly, veterans, and people with disabilities.

Our innovative program is currently accredited by the Council of Rehabilitation Education (CORE) and, as of July 1, 2017, by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Program (CACREP), and is recognized by the Higher Learning Commission.
