Program Description


The CACREP Accredited Rehabilitation Counseling program at Springfield College develops critically reflective, exceptional, counselors, advocates and leaders. We strive to graduate counselors focused on increasing quality of life for people with disabilities by assisting them in achieving their personal, social, career, and independent living goals through the counseling process. Program graduates are employed in a wide range of settings including: state vocational rehabilitation agencies, colleges and universities, K-12 schools, the Department of Veterans Affairs, insurance companies, private practice, and non-profit and other community organizations that support people with congenital and acquired disabilities in reaching their goals. Our rehabilitation counseling program, one of the oldest in the country, aims to develop and hone students’ counseling skills through a combination of coursework and professionally supervised clinical experiences. Our program graduates become advocates and change agents who empower people with disabilities to lead productive and fulfilling lives. Students may take electives to meet the 60-credit program requirement and state licensing requirements. Courses are available on the main campus and are delivered through face to face or online/virtual formats.
