Rehabilitation Science and Technology - Rehabilitation Science and Technology (RST) Concentration, MS


The curriculum covers basic science, engineering principles, assistive technology, pathology, rehabilitation, and consumer advocacy.

Students must complete all core courses. Other units may be taken as electives to meet the required number of credits for graduation.

Thesis/Non-Thesis Options

Students in the rehabilitation science and technology program are encouraged to pursue graduate research by completing a master’s thesis under the direction of a faculty advisor and thesis committee. However, a non-thesis option of a scholarly paper is also available.

RST students who choose the scholarly paper option may take about one year to complete the program. The scholarly paper may take the format of a literature review, program development, or other product as approved by members of the student’s Scholarly Paper Committee.
