Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling
Accelerated Distance-Learning Program
The Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling Accelerated Distance Learning Program is an innovative online academic experience. This program was developed by the C.O.R.E. accredited rehabilitation counseling graduate program at the University of Kentucky to meet the unique learning needs of rehabilitation professionals.
The accelerated format is accomplished by dividing the traditional 16 week semester into two eight-week blocks. Each course's instruction is condensed into an eight-week period. All coursework, with the exception of Practica and Internship is presented via asynchronous web-based instruction. Supervision for Practica and Internship is conducted via live compressed video and web-cam. Students receive quality instruction equivalent to the campus-based master's program. The program can be completed in a 16-month time frame and is fully accessible to students with disabilities. An alternate part-time sequence of coursework is available which will allow the student to complete the program in three years.
The University of Kentucky Graduate Program in Rehabilitation Counseling is accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE). In March 2005, an accreditation review was conducted of the program. This review included a review of the distance education program. The program obtained continued full accreditation without provisions for a term of eight years. The development of this unique Accelerated Distance Education Program was described as "visionary" by reviewers.
