Rehabilitative Services
Hours: 15 credits, all completed with grades of C or better

College of Public Health and Health Professions

The rehabilitative services minor is designed to provide students with an introduction to rehabilitation, potential barriers to adjustment and services available to individuals with rehabilitation or other human service needs.

Prerequisites for the minor include a 2.75 overall GPA and a 2.75 prerequisite GPA based on general college biology, general psychology, abnormal or developmental psychology, and statistics (STA 2023). The minor is open to all students if they meet the prerequisite requirements.

The minor requires 15 credit hours, which includes nine credits of specific core rehabilitative services courses and six credits of elective coursework. Students must complete the required fall core courses before taking spring semester electives unless permission is granted to enroll in a specific elective without first completing the core.

The application and a list of current course work is available from the dean's office, HPNP, Room 4104A.

Elective coursework should be selected from the list below based on the student's career interests and goals. Students need approval of the program director to apply a maximum of three hours of transfer coursework from outside the rehabilitative services curriculum toward the six elective credit hours. Although Survey of Diseases and Disability and the US Health Care System are not listed as electives below, they may count toward the minor, but only for students with majors outside the college. These courses may be taken concurrently with fall core courses. Choice of electives depends on the prerequisites completed, the student's academic interests and career goals, and space available.
