Transition to Work

The Transition-to-Work Master's concentration focuses upon the lifelong transition needs of individuals with significant disabilities and their families.

In addition to vocational outcomes, the Transition-to-Work concentration also addresses issues related to residential living, sexuality, community adjustment, and recreation activities. Please note that the Transition-to-Work master's concentration is different from the Transition-to-Work endorsement. Although coursework for the endorsement  may be applied to the master program, students must apply to, and be accepted in, both programs.

Please contact Dr. Robert Cimera for more information.
