The Disability Studies Minor provides students with a cuttingedge, interdisciplinary body of knowledge and skills geared toward the exploration of the meaning and impact of disability across time, place, and group. As a field akin to Women's and Gender Studies and Ethnic Studies, Disability Studies sees individuals with disabilities as a valuable and integral part of the human community, and it examines the ways in which understandings of disability shape the fundamental aspects of our lives, relationships, and societies. In addition, the program raises awareness of disability issues, knowledge of disability rights and laws, and best practices towards creative toward inclusive and accessible environments and communities. The knowledge and skills gained will prepare students for disability-related careers and advanced study in disability studies, and will enhance and deepen their understanding of the multicultural fabric of contemporary society.
