What will I learn?

The Rehabilitation Science curriculum is designed to produce undergraduate rehabilitation generalists who have training and experience conducive to successful careers in various rehabilitation service programs. Within the Rehabilitation Science major seven minors are offered: 1) Addictions, 2) Aging, 3) Child Welfare and Social Services, 4) Corrections, 5) Disabilities Studies, and 6) Recreation Services.

The Rehabilitation Science Program is dedicated to nurturing the scholastic development, respect for diversity, ethical behavior, passion for advocacy, and professionalism of future rehabilitation practitioners. The graduates from the program will effectively serve the needs of the community, individuals with disabilities, and other human service populations. In order to accomplish this mission, the program has a primary objective to develop personnel for careers with state and private agencies that provide rehabilitation services to persons with disabilities. The program prepares scholars to enter the workforce immediately upon graduation or to pursue additional educational training in graduate school.

Upon graduation from the program students may work in a variety of roles such as case worker, case manager, parole officer, probation officer, juvenile intake officer, children and family service worker, addictions professional, or a number of rehabilitation service provider roles in direct service settings. Examples of these settings are state rehabilitation services, developmental disability centers, psychiatric treatment facilities, correctional settings, nursing homes, halfway houses, community based rehabilitation facilities, workforce centers, disability determination units, senior centers, addictions treatment facilities, and occupational training schools.

Graduates from the program who elect to attend graduate school typically pursue degrees in rehabilitation counseling, other counseling specialties, psychology related fields, social work, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and other human service related fields of study. Entry into some of these graduate programs requires specific electives that will be explained during advising.
