(18 semester hours)
This interdisciplinary minor offers a broad liberal arts approach to the study of disability, providing 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 constructions 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.
There are no special eligibility requirements for this minor.
