Rehabilitation Science

Program Overview

Rehabilitation science is the systematic study of promoting, maintaining, or restoring human function, mobility, occupation, and well-being. Using basic and applied methods, the science is focused on phenomena at the level of the cell, person, family, community, or society to develop and evaluate theories, models, processes, measures, interventions, and policies to prevent, reverse, or minimize impairments, enable activity, and facilitate participation. By its very nature, rehabilitation science is multidisciplinary.

The Rehabilitation Sciences Institute​ offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. To capture the full breadth of rehabilitation, the expertise of its faculty and the research of its students, Rehabilitation Science has identified six fields of study:

  • Movement Science
  • Occupational Science
  • Practice Science
  • Rehabilitation Health Services Studies
  • Rehabilitation Technology Sciences
  • Social and Cognitive Rehabilitation Sciences
