Introduction
The Master of Science Degree in rehabilitation Counseling Program at Wilberforce
University started in August 2004 which was designed to meet the growing demand for
qualified, professionally trained rehabilitation counselors who want to work in public and
private rehabilitation agencies and institutions. The program will result in improvement
in the rehabilitation delivery system by increasing the number of master’s level minority
professionals entering the rehabilitation service, or increasing their qualifications to
advance professionally.

Graduates are prepared to meet the psychological and vocational needs of persons with
varying disabilities such as developmental disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, traumatic
brain injury, spinal cord injury, alcohol and substance abuse, visual impairment, hearing
impairments, substance abuse, as well as other acquired disabling conditions.
Rehabilitation counselors manage the components important in the rehabilitation process
of individuals with physical and mental disabilities. They help prevent fragmentatation
and gaps in services to people seeking to move from psychological and economic
dependence to independence. The counselor draws on knowledge from several fields,
including psychology, medicine, psychiatry, sociology, social work, education, and law.

The Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling is a graduate degree offered through
the Department of Rehabilitation and Disability Studies. It is a minimum 48 semester-
hours program and typically takes two years of full-time study to complete.

Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling Program at Wilberforce University has
received formal authorization from the Ohio Board of Regents (OBR) and North
Central Accreditation (NCA). We are also a candidate for Council on Rehabilitation
Education (CORE) accreditation.

This handbook will give you information on admission, financial aid, scholarship,
curriculum, student responsibility, field experience, comprehensive examination and
advising.

Mission and Objectives
The Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling Program is designed to meet the
growing demand for qualified, professionally trained rehabilitation counselors who want
to work in public and private rehabilitation agencies and institutions. Graduates are
prepared to meet the psychosocial and vocational needs of persons with varying
disabilities such as developmental disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, traumatic brain
injury, spinal cord injury, alcohol and substance abuse behaviors, as well as other
acquired disabling conditions.
Rehabilitation counselors manage the components important in the rehabilitation process
of individuals with physical and mental disabilities. They help prevent fragmentation and
gaps in services to people seeking to move from psychological and economic dependence
to independence. They draw on knowledge from several fields, including psychology,
medicine, psychiatry, sociology, social work, education and law.
The program will recruit minority students and students with disabilities from the entire
Region V area, as it will be the only HBCU program in the Midwest for the foreseeable
future. (Region V includes Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, and
Wisconsin.)

The Master of Rehabilitation Counseling Program will result in improvement in the
rehabilitation delivery system by increasing the number of master’s level minority
professionals entering the rehabilitation service, or increasing their qualifications to
advance professionally.

The Master of Rehabilitation Counseling Program will build local capacity to provide
culturally competent rehabilitation services for minority clients in the rehabilitation
system, improve their chances to achieve successful employment outcomes. The number
of minority master’s level graduates in Ohio will increase to begin to meet the need to
build a culturally diverse workforce in Ohio and the Midwest.

Practicum and Internship

The practicum and internship experiences offer students the opportunity to apply the
skills and competencies gained in the classroom setting into practice by direct supervised
field experience. Attention and focus is also aimed at building upon skill sets and
competencies based on student’s strengths and areas of improvement. The supervised
field experience formalizes an avenue of fostering and promoting professional
development as a rehabilitation counselor. It is expected that upon completion of these
experiences and the program of study that students will be able to establish, build, and
coordinate therapeutic and effective counseling relationships with consumers to achieve
individualized goals.

The practicum is a 100 clock hour supervised field experience in a setting related to
rehabilitation services. It’s the prerequisite for Internship I and II.

Internship I and II consists of a total of 600 clock hours of supervised field experience in
a setting related to rehabilitation services. Students will complete their internship I during
the fifth semester of study; and internship II will be completed in the sixth semester of
study. Students completing the Master’s program on a part-time basis will follow the
program of study and work closely with their academic advisor to schedule their
internship experience.

For detail information, please see Practicum and Internship Manual.



Guide for Comprehensive Examination

All students of the Master of Rehabilitation Counseling Program are required to take the
comprehensive examination—oral, written or both during last or next last semester. The
nature of the examination and its administration are the responsibility of the Director of
the Graduate Program in Rehabilitation Counseling. The time and place of the
comprehensive examination are determined by the Director of Graduate Program.

Comprehensive examinations are scheduled twice a year, the second Friday in March for
Spring semester and the second Friday in October for Fall semester. One semester or
equivalent (16 weeks or two summer terms) must elapse before the comprehensive
examination may be taken a second time. Additional course work, directed study, or
research will be required of a student after the first failure of the comprehensive
examination; the second failure of a comprehensive examination will result in automatic
suspension from the Graduate Program.

At least five days prior to the comprehensive examination, the name of the student and
the date, time, and place of the examination shall be posted in a prominent place.



                                             11
Students must maintain at least an average 3.0 GPA on all course work to be eligible to
sit for the exam. Typically, students take the comprehensive exam during the fifth
semester or during their last internship.

The Graduate Program requires successful performance on a written comprehensive
exam toward the end of the student’s work for the degree. The six-hour written
comprehensive exam consists of questions within the student’s area of concentration and
core requirement. The student is expected to demonstrate knowledge and skills
appropriate to the master’s level in integrating facts, concepts, and arguments from
diverse sources into a systemic, well-reasoned, well-written narrative.

The comprehensive examination is prepared and evaluated by the graduate faculty. The
student will be notified, in writing, when student has passed or failed the examination. A
student must obtain a total overall passing score on the comprehensive exam before
graduating. If a student fails any section of the exam, he/she will be required to take an
oral exam presented to the Mast of Rehabilitation Counseling Comprehensive Exam
Committee. If the student fails the oral exam, he/she will be required to retake the exam
and in some cases, additional course work may be required before repeating the exam.
Any student who fails the comprehensive exam at the second attempt will be dropped
from candidacy for the degree.

The written comprehensive exam is to determine the extent to which the student can
analyze, synthesize, organize and apply, in his/her unique personal style, knowledge
directly pertaining to various aspects of and issues in Rehabilitation Counseling. Recall
and statement of facts, theories, and descriptions of current programs and practices are
often necessary in clarifying the student’s position. A response limited to these will,
however, be considered inadequate.

An adequate response must demonstrate the student’s ability to deal directly with the
issues stated or implied by the question. Quoting recognized leaders in the field or citing
results of research or program analyses and evaluation will be very helpful in clarifying
and establishing parameters germane to the program or issue to be discussed. But, such a
presentation, alone, regardless of completeness and authenticity, is to be considered
wholly inadequate.

What is sought is prima facie evidence that the respondent does:
    1) Understand the questions or problem presented;
    2) Internalize the issue in a personal approach;
    3) Utilize sound arguments, documentation and research to “zero in” on the most
        important aspects of the problem or issue;
    4) Succinctly conclude with his/her position.
In so concluding, the student should “personalize” the response and defend that response
in contrast to previously identified positions.




                                            12
Standards of Scholarship

Credit is given for grades for “A”, “B”, and “C”. Students must maintain an average of
“B” to get the degree. That is, if you get a “C”, you must have an “A” to balance it.
Courses with the grades of “D”, “F”, “I”, or “W” cannot be used to satisfy any of the
requirements of a graduate degree, but they will be used to determine a student’s
academic standing.

A grades of “I” is given only when extenuating circumstances (hospitalization, personal
injury, ect.) prevent a student from completing course requirements. The grade of “I” is
given also when student is engaged in a research project and additional time is required to
complete the work. The grade of “I” must be replaced by a passing grade within one year
or it is counted as an “F”.


Grade Explanation                  Point for calculating GPA

A         Excellent                          4
B         Good                               3

F         Failing                            0
I         Incomplete                         0
W         Drop or Withdraw                   0

Probation

 A student working toward a Master’s degree must maintain a “B” average in all work
offered toward degree requirements. If a student’s grade point average falls below “B”,
the student is placed on probation.

The length of the probationary period is set by the Director of Rehabilitation Counseling
Program and the advisor. Students who do not raise their grade point average to “B” by
the end of the probationary period are dismissed from the Graduate Program and
suspended from further work toward a Master’s degree at the university.

A student who is suspected may petition the director of the Graduate program in
Rehabilitation Counseling, but the petition must be accompanied by a positive
recommendation from graduate faculty member.

Continues Assessment

Students in the Graduate Program are engaged in regular systematic assessment activities
and the results are used to foster student achievement through modification and
improvement of the program. These activities include:


                                                    13
1. Course Evaluation
   Students complete a course evaluation on each of the courses in the Graduate Program.
2. Program Evaluation
   Students complete the Annual Student Satisfaction Evaluation each Spring Semester.
3. Comprehensive Examination
   Master Program candidates must take comprehensive examinations prior to
   graduation. These examinations assess the master and achievement of the candidates in
   the program.
4. Exit Interviews.
   The director of the Graduate Program in Rehabilitation Counseling and selected
   member of the graduate faculty interview each student who is completing the Master
   of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling degree. This structured interview elicits
   information on the strengths and weaknesses of the program. The graduate faculty use
   information collected from the exit interviews to make appropriate changes.
5. Graduate Follow-up.
   Students are mailed a follow-up Graduate Alumni Evaluation one year after their
   graduation.
6. Employer Evaluation.
   When students are mailed the evaluation one year after graduation, they are provided
   with a form to give their employer that will also assess student’s knowledge and skills
   obtained in Graduate Program.
