Health Science (Rehabilitation Sciences)

I am Interested in This Major

The rehabilitation science emphasis prepares students for application to graduate programs in fields such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, chiropractic, applied behavior analysis, orthotics/prosthetics and similar degrees. The rehabilitation science emphasis may also prepare students who have appropriate work experience as an undergraduate to work as applied behavior analysis implementers, coaches for alternative community training organizations. The rehabilitation science emphasis area includes 20 hours of core required courses, general education, professional emphasis requirements and required electives that complement the student’s pathway. In addition, the health science program requires an internship that is appropriate for a student’s career goals. Examples of internships for the rehabilitation science emphasis include: Therapeutic Equine Center, MU Adaptive Gymnastics, MU Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Mizzou Therapy Services, Wonderland Camp.
