The application deadline for the master of science degree program in rehabilitation counseling at The University of Texas-Pan American for the Fall 1999 semester is July 1.
The two-year program consists of 48 semester credit hours, including a 100-hour practicum and 600-hour internship.
Rehabilitation Services Administration student stipends, generally covering tuition and an $800 per month living expense, are available for qualified applicants. Teaching assistantships may also be available.
Rehabilitation counseling continues to be a fast-growing field as the demand for qualified counselors increases nationally.
Rehabilitation counselors are employed in vocational rehabilitation agencies, mental health agencies, substance abuse centers, hospitals, private practices, schools and in business and human resource departments. They assist persons with physical, mental and emotional disabilities in adapting to their personal and vocational lives.
The program is completing its second year of operation and will graduate its first students this May.
