Adler University  

Adler University’s Master of Arts (M.A.) in Counseling: Specialization in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling program prepares socially responsible clinicians to improve quality of life for individuals who face physical, developmental, and emotional challenges. Trained to confront systemic barriers and increase opportunities for inclusion, our graduates are well equipped to empower populations such as the elderly, veterans, and people with disabilities in a wide range of settings.

Our innovative program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP) within the Rehabilitation Counseling specialty (we are seeking recognition as a Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling specialty with our next accreditation). With a comprehensive curriculum and supervised clinical field experiences, we prepare students for the Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) examination and careers in counseling, case management, and advocacy.

Our immersive learning environment prepares students to work not only with individuals with disabilities, but also communities in addressing challenges stemming from disability, including employers, family members, education professionals, and others.
