Rehab Dual Degree

Accelerated BA/Rehabilitation Counseling M.A. Dual Degree Program

The accelerated BA/Rehabilitation Counseling M.A. dual degree program enables students to complete both their BA and MA in only five years.

Rehabilitation counselors empower individuals with disabilities to achieve their life goals by assisting them to identify their strengths, build on their assets, enhance their abilities, and effectively adapt to the environments in which they function. If you are looking for a career with a high level of personal satisfaction and the ability to transform others’ lives, Rehabilitation Counseling may be the path for you.

At Assumption, we have designed an accelerated program to enable students to complete both their BA and MA in only five years, saving you a year’s worth of time and tuition and getting you out into the workforce sooner!

Apply as a high school senior into the dual degree program with one application and benefit from being considered for a $2,500 Dual Degree Scholarship (per year for your 4 undergraduate years).  You will also be considered for a $1,000 Dual Degree Scholarship for every term you are enrolled at least part time in your graduate program at Assumption.

There is a great need for Rehabilitation Counselors and our graduates are aggressively recruited by rehabilitation and human services agencies throughout New England and the United States, many being hired prior to graduation.

If you are considering a career in rehabilitation or one of the helping professions which requires an understanding of disability and counseling, the Rehabilitation Counseling program at Assumption University provides you with a supportive environment, small classes, and an exceptional faculty to help you achieve your career goals, all backed by a 50 year legacy of success.
