This certificate is recommended for students in other disciplines who seek a basic understanding of the disability experience or who wish to add disability-related knowledge and skills to their professional preparation.
Unlike other human service workers, rehabilitation studies graduates receive specialized instruction in the areas of disability and employment. The undergraduate academic certificate in rehabilitation studies provides students with fundamental knowledge and skills in these areas for effective interaction with individuals with disabilities.
This four-course certificate option addresses an unmet need in the local and regional job market for entry-level community rehabilitation providers to serve an increasing number of people with disabilities, particularly the elderly and individuals with developmental disabilities. Because this certificate is offered through distance learning, it is accessible for individuals with disabilities and current rehabilitation workers seeking higher education will also have greater access to the program.
