Rehabilitation Counseling, M.S.

"The Rehabilitation Counseling master’s degree program at UB has been an exceptional learning experience thus far. In one semester I've obtained a greater deal of knowledge in psychology, than I had in all four years of college. The professors at UB are always able to be contacted with any issue or concern. They exude empathy and unconditional positive regard for their students. Qualities such as these truly make a difference for students, especially those who are taking online classes. This also set a positive example for me to follow to be a better practitioner.

The classes required for the master’s degree program are very interesting as well. The textbooks and assignments given provide different perspectives in therapy and allow you to explore your own level of self-awareness. UB has created a program that reaches out to students and grabs their interest. By doing so, I have grown to enjoy school and received a 4.0 on my first semester! Other schools usually assign a textbook, boring reading material and students don't retain half of it. I am very happy to be a part of this program and excited to see what I learn next. Due to my positive experience, I've also decided to receive my advanced certification in mental health at UB. Once my master’s program is complete, I will be happy to venture further into my studies and the next opportunity! I would highly recommend attending UB or getting an online degree from their university!"
