Utah State University (USU) offers the Master of Rehabilitation Counseling program to students with an interest in aiding those with disabilities. Rehabilitation counselors are responsible for providing services to adults with a broad range of disabilities, helping them take control of their lives and find employment. Students who earn this degree may be eligible to take the national Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) examination.
This program may be ideal for professionals already working as rehabilitation counselors who are seeking to upgrade their education in order to advance. It is the goal of USU in this program to promote the code of professional ethics and the basic philosophical tenets of rehabilitation: the value and worth of all individuals, a belief in human dignity, and the right of any individual to participate in a society.
