Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology with a
Concentration in Rehabilitation Counseling
The Rehabilitation Counseling program at Alabama A & M University is accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE), www.core-rehab.org. This accredited graduate program admits 10 – 14 candidates through the Graduate School. Interviews are held during the spring semester and students enter the Program during either the fall or spring semesters. Student outcomes are evaluated each semester on some measures and annually on others.
The current enrollment of 24 students is managed by two full-time Certified Rehabilitation Counseling (CRC) tenured and tenure track faculty teaching the CORE approved 48 credit hour curricula. The faculty to student ratio is 1:12.
The 2011-2012 graduation total was two students. Each student fulfilled all requirements, which included didactic, practicum and internships. One student is actively employed with a supportive employment environment and another is interviewing for jobs in the state of Alabama. Both graduates are applying for national certification.
Both graduate students are female and non-minority, and one is an individual with a disability. Both graduates were RSA Scholars, receiving scholarship from a U.S. Department of Education Rehabilitation Services Administration grant, which is now completing its second year of funding.
