The Consortium for Distance Education in Rehabilitation (CDER)
Online Access to Graduate Level Education in Rehabilitation Counseling
The CDER Project was implemented in 1999 by two CORE accredited degree-granting universities: San Diego State University (SDSU) and the University of North Texas (UNT). A central purpose was, and remains, to use distance learning strategies and adult learning principles to make high quality, CORE accredited, graduate level courses and the Master of Science Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling accessible to qualified students throughout the United States, including the Territories and the Commonwealth, and other countries.
