Home » Rehabilitation Counseling Masters Program
USU's Rehabilitation Counseling program is fully accredited through summer of 2017 by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) to provide graduate-level training in the field of rehabilitation counseling. Rehabilitation counselors provide services to adults with a broad range of disabilities to help them obtain gainful employment and take control of their lives. Those who complete either the on-campus or distance program receive a Master of Rehabilitation Counseling degree (MRC) and are eligible to take the national Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) examination.
In addition to traditional on-campus courses, classes are offered through Internet-based, distance education. Distance courses are taught using telecommunications technology across the nation. Students enrolling in the distance education program must come to the Utah State University campus for a minimum of three summer classes that are offered in one-week formats to accommodate the working professional. These classes can be taken all in one summer or over two or three summers. Practicum and internship experiences can be arranged in local communities with the availability of a supervisor who is a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. An LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) track is available to on-campus students only.
