The Rehabilitation Counseling and Human Services is primarily designed to be "practitioner focused" but students are encouraged to participate in research to further their understanding of the professional literature and purpose of counseling research. As a part of the curriculum and course expectations, students may be asked to research and discuss the utility of research as a tool for current and future counselors.
