To engage students in an examination of the many ways disability is defined and constructed.
The minor “engages students in an examination of the many ways disability is defined and constructed. Students will build knowledge of the political, rhetorical, social, educational, historical, legal and medical frameworks of disability through both classroom and experiential study in courses drawn from several disciplines. Students will examine the ways systems inhibit and promote full participation of people with disabilities, explore how communities define and reinforce norms, and understand disability as an inherent part of diversity and inclusivity.” This 19-credit minor draws its courses form three colleges: The College of Arts and Letters; the College of Health and Behavioral Studies; and, the College of Visual and Performing Arts. After completing an online 1-credit introduction to the minor, students select one course from a list of five electives to serve as a core course. They are then free to select their remaining five courses (with no more than three from any discipline) from a permanent set of 11 electives.
