Rehabilitation Counselor Education

Welcome to the Rehabilitation Counselor Education Concentration (RCEP) at the University of Texas at Austin!  The RCEP was started in 1963 and received its first funding from RSA in 1967.

The Department of Special Education’s Rehabilitation Counselor Education Concentration (RCE) is accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) and offers graduate coursework leading to a Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree. Consisting of 48 hours of academic coursework and practical experience, the RCE master’s concentration prepares students to assist people with disabilities in gaining vocational, economic, and functional independence. This coursework may be used in preparation for becoming a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a certified rehabilitation counselor (CRC).
