Department of Graduate Studies in Vision Impairment
Salus University offers excellent opportunities for those seeking a master’s degree or certificate in Education and Rehabilitation for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Onsite and distance learning opportunities, with practicum, case study, and field-based learning, give Salus University graduates extensive preparation for leadership in these high-demand fields.
Impaired Vision programs were developed at Salus University in 1983, making Salus University the first institution in the country to offer four master’s degrees and certificates in the following areas:
- Low Vision Rehabilitation
- Orientation and Mobility
- Education for Teachers of Children with Visual and Multiple Disabilities
- Vision Rehabilitation Therapy (formerly Rehabilitation Teaching)
All programs are offered through online distance education. All distance education master’s degree programs require an on-campus summer residency to facilitate hands-on experience and practice.
