Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The Counseling and Human Services curriculum offers a concentration in rehabilitation services to enhance the knowledge and practice for work with persons with disabilities in response to an increasing need for baccalaureate-level professionals in rehabilitation services. Through a concentration in rehabilitation services, students will be prepared to work in state and local agencies that are responsible for the vocational, mental-health, job-development and coaching and related needs of persons with disabilities. Students can also pursue an emphasis on persons with addiction and substance-abuse disabilities. This concentration is only for Counseling and Human Services majors.

Total: 124 - 127 Credits

1 Includes community based learning component.

2 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundations Course is acceptable and often substituted for the 6 credits encompassing both COMM 100  and C/IL 102 , thus allowing the total number of credits required for graduation to be 124.  Students always have the option to take COMM 100  and C/IL 102  instead of the EP course, which may be necessary if an EP Foundations course is not available. This option raises the credits to 127.  Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
