The Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling Program offers both a non-thesis and a thesis program. All students are initially admitted to the non-thesis program. There is no language requirement; however, a comprehensive examination is required of all students before the degree is awarded.
Students in the non-thesis program must complete a minimum of 60 hours in the Post-Baccalaureate Program (REH). Electives may be taken from program offerings or from offerings outside the program with the consent of the student's advisor.
Students may subsequently apply to the faculty for a thesis program. Students in a thesis program must complete a minimum of 60 hours in the Post-Baccalaureate Program (54-hour core curriculum plus a minimum of three hours of RCS 6970). An oral defense of the thesis is required.
