Rehabilitation Counseling - A Growing Need

The U.S. Department of Labor forecasts that Rehabilitation Counseling is expected to grow by 10 percent through 2028, which is faster than the average for all occupations.  Career opportunities in rehabilitation counseling are predicted to be excellent.

Scranton's Rehabilitation Counseling program prepares students for careers in a variety of counseling settings with the primary goal of acquiring and applying the specialized knowledge, skills, attitudes and values needed to collaborate in a professional relationship with people who have disabilities to achieve their personal, social, psychological, and vocational goals.

Rigorous Curriculum - Successful Outcomes

The program is a 60 credit curriculum leading to the Master of Science degree. Our program is divided into four areas of study that include:

  • 42 credits of Counseling Foundations (including a 3-credit elective)
  • 18 hours of Rehabilitation Foundations
  • 6 credits of Electives
  • 9 credits of Clinical Competencies, which is comprised of a three credit practicum (100 hours of supervised counseling experience) and six credits of internship (600 hours of supervised field experience)

The Rehabilitation Counseling program at the University of Scranton, a Jesuit University, is fully accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) through 2023.
