Minor in Disability Studies

About

The Disability Studies Minor is a 20-25 credit hour program that will teach you about disability, disability culture, and the lived experiences of persons with disabilities. In addition to Certificate requirements, DSST 420 addresses diverse groups including disabled persons in human rights contexts. In DSST 430, you’ll learn about the place of disabled people by looking as expressed in drama, writing, philosophy and other societal and cultural expressions.

Disability Studies is also an optional area of study for students pursuing an Interdisciplinary Studies major.
