From the Program Coordinator, Dr. Julie Maybee

Disability Studies offers a unique, holistic and interdisciplinary approach to disability issues that is focused on the experiences of people with disabilities as they work toward full participation in society. The Minor in Disability Studies is particularly valuable for those students who are majoring in fields which may lead to employment in service professions—majors such as Health Education and Promotion, Health Services Administration, Nursing, Recreation Education (especially Therapeutic Recreation), Social Work, Sociology, Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, and Psychology.

The discipline of Disability Studies has its roots in the Independent Living movements and disability activism that grew up in the 1970s in Britain and the United States as part of the international, political movement toward increased civil rights. Read More...
