The rehabilitation science program at Mason was unlike most programs I visited. I was not going to follow the individual in front of me; independent thought is major variable built into this program. I know others who are in different programs where they are collecting a lot of data and sitting through classes where they are expected to memorize facts. Our program, which is full of content, also stresses learning how these facts are obtained and if they are what they are presented as. I would encourage students who are serious about developing a new level of intelligence and working within an interdisciplinary program to consider the rehabilitation science program at Mason. I would also encourage them to be open-minded as challenging conventional thinking is not easy.
