Distance Education Image 004If you are a human services professional, you already understand what makes your career so worthwhile. You see it in your clients' faces every day.  If you want to make an even bigger impact on their lives, then consider the Online Master of Science in Rehabilitative Sciences at Clarion University.  This 33-credit, non-clinical program is designed for busy adults who cannot travel to campus due to distance, job commitments or family responsibilities.  You can earn your graduate degree in as little as two years without ever having to come to the Clarion Campus.


Believe In Our Program

The Online Master of Science in Rehabilitative Sciences is intended for students who are pursuing careers in human services.  Students in this program typically work with:

  • Individuals diagnosed with mental health problems
  • Individuals diagnosed with substance abuse problems
  • The elderly
  • Those with developmental disabilities in community or residential/correctional settings.
  • Governmental or nongovernmental agencies

Coursework covers research, intervention strategies, philosophy and principles of rehabilitation, administration and other subjects.  Because the M.S. in Rehabilitative Sciences is not a clinical degree (e.g., leading to licensure as a professional counselor), it does not require practicum experiences.  Normally, it can be completed within two years.
