Immerse yourself in the interdisciplinary and dynamic field of rehabilitation science.
The undergraduate program allows you to learn more about the human body and its function, the challenges and issues that affect people with disabilities, and the technologies and disciplines that can improve everyone's quality of life. Follow a rigorous curriculum that includes elective and core courses in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, research methodology, neuroscience, disability rights, assistive technologies, and more. If you’d like to specialize your degree, opt for one of three certificates in the areas of assistive technology, pathokinesiology, or psycho-social issues in rehabilitation and personal care. This program is designed to prepare students for graduate study in physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant studies, rehabilitation technology and other health and rehabilitation-related disciplines.
The interdisciplinary PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences allows you to stand on the threshold of new ideas and take the leap. You can become a researcher, scholar or teacher. You can advance the knowledge of rehabilitation sciences through research, planning, or public policy. You can make a difference! Work alongside some of the world’s premier research scientists and thought leaders as you create new knowledge. Immerse yourself in state-of-the-art laboratories and opportunities for mentorship. Share your passion for rehabilitation sciences with students who are eager to learn.
