Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (C.A.G.S.)

A five course, 15 credit Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Rehabilitation Counseling is offered to students who have completed the 60 credit masters degree in Rehabilitation Counseling at Assumption College. For students who have completed a closely related graduate degree at another college, they may apply to the C.A.G.S. program. The course of study for applicants who do not hold a masters degree in Rehabilitation Counseling will require completion of 21-30 credits, or 7-10 courses depending on their previous graduate work. In all cases the C.A.G.S. course of study is developed in consultation with the graduate program director. Students enrolled in this program have an opportunity to develop an area of specialization that is related to their current work or future career goals. Students are typically enrolled in the C.A.G.S. program on a part-time basis, and have up to 7 years to complete their course of study.
