About

UMass Boston's School for Global Inclusion and Social Development is home to the highest-rated rehabilitation counseling program in New England (U.S. News & World Report). We offer a master degree in Rehabilitation Counseling at the University of Massachusetts Boston. 

Overview

Rehabilitation counselors support people with disabilities to lead productive and fulfilling lives, including working at integrated and competitive jobs in their communities. Our 60-degree master’s program in Rehabilitation Counseling from the University of Massachusetts Boston develops professionals to advance educational access and economic and social participation for individuals with disabilities.

We prepare our students to become leaders who promote inclusion in diverse settings and with varied populations. Students integrate classroom content with real-world application via their fieldwork.

Careers 

Rehabilitation counselors have excellent career opportunities available to them. They work in diverse settings, such as:

  • State/federal vocational rehabilitation agencies
  • Veterans Administration
  • Community-based programs for people with specific disabilities, such as mental health disabilities, intellectual disabilities, autism, or brain injury
  • Outpatient agencies
  • Residential treatment facilities
  • Schools
  • Insurance companies

Programme Structure

  • The clinical rehabilitation counseling track prepares students to work with people with mental health disabilities, as well as other disabilities. The track is certified through the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Programs (CACREP).
  • The vocational rehabilitation counseling track prepares students to work in the federal/state vocational rehabilitation system and in community rehabilitation programs. This track offers more flexibility than the clinical track in terms of class options.
