The undergraduate program in Rehabilitation Services is designed to equip and empower undergraduate students to provide rehabilitation services to a wide variety of consumers with disabilities such as deafness/hardness of hearing, drug/alcohol addiction, medical and psychiatric illnesses, blindness/visual impairments, and especially those with most severe disabilities. It is developed 

  1. to meet the State of Maryland and the national need for entry level personnel;
  2. to maximally enhance the application of the skills and competencies of underrepresented minorities in the field of rehabilitation and;
  3. to prepare students to work competently and professionally in various rehabilitation settings such as independent living rehabilitation, non-profit and private sectors.
  4. These manpower training needs have become more pressing with the enactment of legislative amendments on independent living rehabilitation and the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

A student desiring to major in Rehabilitation Services should first confer with one of the faculty advisors of the program. Upon successfully meeting GER requirements a student must receive a total of 120 credits to graduate with a major in Rehabilitation Services.
