Disability Studies Minor
Minimum Credit Hours for Minor: 18
Disability studies is an interdisciplinary minor, offering a broad liberal arts approach to the study of disability. The undergraduate Disability Studies Minor provides students with knowledge of the historical, social, artistic, literary, legal, educational, philosophical, and political framing of disability. Students develop a strong interdisciplinary foundation, with emphasis on cultural construction of disability, and the intersections of disability, race, gender, sex, age, class and other markers of diversity and difference. Students have the opportunity to enhance this foundation by extending their learning into the community through the senior capstone internship and/or independent research requirement.
