Vocational Rehabilitation Counselling (MA)


Course Description

Program Overview

UBC has developed a state-of-the-art professionally-oriented program in Vocational Rehabilitation Counselling which follows the scientist-practitioner training model and prepares students for independent practice in a wide spectrum of vocational rehabilitation service areas such as vocational assessment, vocational individual and group intervention, adjustment and rehabilitative counselling, job development and placement, return-to-work planning, case and disability management, and research and program evaluation. Supervised clinical experience in a Vocational Rehabilitation setting as well as coursework on psychosocial and medical aspects of disability are included in the curriculum. The program is responsive to the needs of Canadian vocational rehabilitation professionals and provides a uniquely Canadian perspective on vocational rehabilitation counselling and the environment where it is delivered.

The curriculum has been developed in accordance with future program accreditation requirements, and prepares graduates for licensing by respective licensing bodies for vocational rehabilitation professionals.

The program normally admits students every three years. Please check with the program to see if applications are being accepted for the upcoming academic year.
