TU bachelor’s degree in rehabilitation studies ranks in top 25 list
Thomas University’s Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Studies degree program has been named number 11 in the list “Top 25 Most Accessible Online Bachelor’s Degrees in Counseling” by the website Best Counseling Degrees (www.bestcounselingdegrees.net).
The list recognizes the top accredited undergraduate online counseling degree programs in the U.S.
“The Division of Counseling and Psychology is thrilled that the bachelor’s in Rehabilitation Studies program is being recognized nationally,” said Pauline Patrick, Coordinator for the B.S. in Rehabilitation Studies degree program at Thomas University. “This program is one of the first in the country to offer students the opportunity to earn their degree in Rehabilitation Studies fully online, preparing them for jobs working with kids and adults with various disabilities. Thomas University has offered this program for two years and had its first two graduates in May 2015, both with exciting job opportunities awaiting them. We offer small classes, individualized support, and a connection with the professors.”
When it began in August 2013, TU’s program was the only completely online undergraduate degree in rehabilitation in the U.S. The program includes concentration options for School-to-Work Transitions, Addictions, Gerontology and Criminal Justice. TU’s program is the only one in Rehabilitation Studies to make the top 25 list. TU was also the only college or university in Georgia to make the list.
“More and more schools are offering online undergraduate degrees to students looking for flexibility and convenience as they pursue their educational and professional goals,” the website states. “Self-motivated individuals who are committed to work and family will find that an online degree fits their lifestyle.”
To develop the list, Best Counseling Degrees used information from the College Navigator of the Institute of Education Sciences, which is part of the U.S. Department of Education.
Earlier this year, Best Counseling Degrees also named TU’s Master of Science Degree in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling to its list “50 Best Online Schools for a Graduate Degree in Counseling 2015.”
