University Connected Learning
An interdisciplinary course in Disability Studies will serve as an overview of the significance of disability in society and culture by viewing it from various perspectives. The course will explore theories and models that examine health, economic, social, political, and cultural factors that define disability and influence personal and collective responses to disability. Students will participate in a service learning project that will help to integrate key concepts from the course and their own disciplines. This course is intended to prepare graduate students with knowledge and understanding of disability in order to enhance their knowledge and skills as professionals and citizens.
