Campus Master's Program
The University of Kentucky Rehabilitation Counseling Program (UKRCP) was established in 1962 and is among the oldest Rehabilitation Counseling graduate programs in the nation. The Program is accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE). We were most recently accredited in 2005 and will be reviewed again in 2013. The UKRCP is approved by the Kentucky Council on Post Secondary Education and is the only Rehabilitation Counseling master’s degree program in Kentucky.
The Rehabilitation Counseling Program is housed within the Department of Early Childhood, Special Education and Rehabilitation Counseling at the University of Kentucky. The UKRCP offers graduate degrees at the master's and doctoral level. Completion of the master's program leads to a Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling (MRC) and the flexible curriculum can be tailored to meet each student’s individual needs and interests. The program prepares students to become professional rehabilitation counselors, able to assist persons with physical, mental, developmental, cognitive, and emotional disabilities to achieve their personal, career, and independent living goals through the application of the rehabilitation counseling process; thus enhancing the quality of life of consumers.
