All coursework for the Masters of Rehabilitation Counseling is offered via the Internet. Because students are not limited by geographical distance there is more opportunity for learning with and from others around the country.

Distance learning provides the opportunity to share with others from around the country and from different agencies. Students regularly engage in dynamic exchanges and learning projects. By sharing an online community of practicing counselors learners provide each other with support, insights, and encouragement.

The Department of Human Services at Wright State University is dedicated to helping professional counselors obtain and maintain the education and training needed for employment and practice in today's market.
