About this course
The Rehabilitation Counseling and Case Management Program focuses upon providing training for students who are interested in working with the physically and emotionally disabled. This program also requires extensive field experience. The Master of Science degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and Case Management is a fifty-two (52) semester hour program within the Department of Counseling and is professionally accredited by The Council on Rehabilitation Counselor Education (CORE). Traditional and hybrid (partially online) classes are held at the Warner Robins Center. The M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling and Case Management also is offered as a fully online program.
The requirements are the same as they are for the traditional program. Internships and practica will be supervised via virtual technologies for students who are unable to interact with campus evaluators face-to-face.
The mission of the Rehabilitation Counselor program is to prepare professional rehabilitation counselors with the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes in order to work effectively with individuals who have physical, mental, or emotional disabilities.
The goal of the program is to assist individuals with disabilities to achieve, to the fullest capacity, vocational, social, psychological and economic independence, and improved quality of life. The vigor of the program is one of both autonomy and empowerment in which individuals with disabilities exercise the utmost control over their lives.
