Why study University of Scranton?
  • Since 1965, The University of Scranton has been preparing students to work in the wide field of rehabilitation counseling.

    For over 50 years, we have been working to educate and train students for careers in a variety of counseling settings. Our primary goal is to acquire and apply 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.

    In 2017, the program went through a curricular revision process to keep up with changes in the field and move to a 60 credit program.


    Beginning in the fall of 2019, the program moved to a 60-credit curriculum leading to the Master of Science degree. Our program curriculum includes: Foundations of Professional Counseling courses (39 credits), Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling courses (18 credits) and one Elective course (3 credits). This includes a three credit practicum (100 hours of supervised counseling experience at our on-campus David W. Hall Counselor Training Center) and six credits of internship (600 hours of supervised field experience within a community placement). 

    For specific course information, please review the Rehabilitation Counseling Program Manual.

    For additional information on the curriculum, visit the Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling, MS Catalog.
