The Master of Rehabilitation Counseling (MRC) is a graduate degree offered through the Division of Professional Studies. It is a 48 semester-hours program.
This 48-unit sequence of study seeks scholars/practitioners who will devote a minimum of two years of graduate study to develop a mastery of knowledge and skill areas identified by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) as requisite competencies for rehabilitation counselors. The program strives to mold scholars/practitioners who apply their studies to guide practice. Students who successfully complete the coursework are eligible to apply for national certification as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (through the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification).
