The Bachelor of Community Rehabilitation (BCR) program is available to:
- students coming directly from high school;
- students who have completed a Community College Diploma in Rehabilitation Studies or a related field;
- students transferring from another university or have already completed a degree.
The BCR is an interdisciplinary degree both in the courses it provides and the students it serves.
Students are expected to achieve a foundation in health, leadership, human services, policy, community action, and critical disability studies, and will work with individuals of diverse ages and disabling conditions. Through specialized interdisciplinary study, practical experience and project work, they gain professional skills in individual counselling and personal planning, team co-ordination, design and management of community services, advocacy and small business development.
Students can specialize in areas such as career development, working with seniors, brain injury, community mental health or early intervention. Students specialize by choosing appropriate health and senior social science course options and doing their projects and practica in their chosen area.
