In Short

Students select from a variety of courses concerned with matters of perceived and measured human ability and capacity. The student is required to take a core set of courses supplemented by a choice from a list of disability-related courses.

Disability Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that offers a liberal arts approach to the study of disability. The undergraduate Disability Studies minor provides students with knowledge of the historical, social, aesthetic, literary, legal, educational, philosophical, biological and political framing of disability. Students develop a strong interdisciplinary foundation, with emphasis on cultural constructions of human ability and the intersections of disability, race, gender, sex, age, class, and other markers of diversity and difference.
