Development of communication skills and ability to use counseling as a tool to help clients achieve their goals.
Development of communication skills necessary to foster and develop effective counseling relationships.
This course is part of a program modification of the Masters of Rehabilitation Counseling (MRC) degree program. The change from 700-level to 600-level is more consistent with a basic introduction to the fundamentals of counseling practice. The change to 600-level also reflects that the course is appropriate for advanced undergraduate students as well as graduate students. The content of the class remains essentially the same. For the program modification, the primary course designator is changing from RHAB to RCON.

Ref: RCON 701 & 705
To: Kerry Lachance:
Kerry, after our INDEV discussion Thursday, February 23, 2017 it is apparent that both RCON 701 & 705 have both been approved for on – line course before the INDEV committee was established. No further action with respect to the USC InDEV on-line courses is necessary.
Thank you for your valuable time and expertise. Thank you especially for taking the time to be part of our discussion.
Don Jordan, Chair InDEV 2016 – 2017
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):
- There should be addition graduate-level learning outcomes. The differentiated grading system between graduate students and undergraduate students is provided, but there are no differentiated LOs. (Also, should the labeling "Student Learning Objectives" be modified to "Student Learning Outcomes?")
-The change in course numbering needs to be clarified. 600 level classes are normally for graduate and undergraDUATE credit, but this proposal seems to intend it only for Masters level enrollment. Need either to clairify that it is only for graduate enrollment, or put it at the 700 level.
Please address the above and return this proposal, through all the channels, by March 17 at noon in order to be considered for approval by the Faculty Senate at the December meeting. Should your proposal not reach the committee by the stated deadline, the next Curricula and Courses review cycle will begin in mid-March. We are looking forward to your making this cycle.
KC Kirasic, Chair
Faculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
