Our master’s degree in Global Inclusion and Social Development focuses on reasons that various populations are excluded from their communities worldwide. Exclusion can be related to gender, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and economic status.
Our graduates go on to serve as leaders in their communities, as well as national and international nonprofits, state and national government, and the for-profit sphere. In all these roles, they increase inclusion regionally, nationally, and globally.

Rehabilitation counselors support people with barriers to employment to find fulfilling work that matches their interests and skills. Rehab counselors work with clients who have disabilities, criminal histories, and substance abuse histories. The goal is for each person to discover their strengths, overcome their challenges, and engage in their personal and professional community.
Students may choose to take our courses on campus or online.
