I received my BA in Psychology from GCU and I loved the atmosphere and the message that GCU supports, so I thought it only made sense to continue my education at Georgian Court. I gained so much from being in the program. I was lucky to have such knowledgable professors who have prepared me for my future as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
The B.S. in Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Psychology is a double-major, joint-degree program from Georgian Court University and the Rutgers School of Health Related Professions (Rutgers-SHRP).
This program will prepare you to help others boost their quality of life despite having a mental health impairment that impacts their lives. As a psychiatric rehabilitation practitioner, you’ll provide collaborative, person-directed, and individualized services that focus on helping people develop skills and access resources needed to increase their capacity for successful and satisfied lives.
The program offers two tracks: Choose the general track if you wish to graduate and get a job with your B.S. degree, or intend to get graduate degrees in subjects other than psychology, such as an M.A. in Education. Select the graduate track if you want to go on to graduate school in psychology. As part of the program, you will complete five semesters at GCU and finish the last three semesters at the Rutgers campus in either Scotch Plains or Stratford, New Jersey.
