The Master of Science in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling (MSCR) program is a distance education, graduate program designed to provide comprehensive training for the counseling field. Our mission is to provide high quality instruction to prepare students for a rewarding career in the counseling specialty of clinical rehabilitation counseling. Clinical education is an important part of counselor education. All students are required to complete a Practicum and Internship at a qualified site under the supervision of a qualified site supervisor. The MSCR curriculum has an emphasis on telehealth. This model of distance-based service provision is a cutting edge technique growing in practice and acceptance nationwide. Students will be eligible for a certificate in telehealth upon graduation.
Students who graduate from the MSCR program are prepared to work with clients in a variety of settings; including schools and universities, state workforce systems, veteran services, advocacy and non-profit agencies, employee assistance programs, private forensic practice, and hospital settings.
For TTUHSC School of Health Professions to offer online courses in a state other than Texas, TTUHSC must first comply with that state's requirements. These requirements differ from state to state, with requirements being more rigorous and expensive in some states than others. TTUHSC SHP is currently working to gain authorization to offer online courses in all states. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs (806-743-3220, firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information.
