The goal of this certificate is to prepare graduate students to understand the nature, meaning, health, social and political implications, and consequences of disability, within the context of diversity and global culture from which we live and operate. Courses selected for the core and as electives are based on guidelines from the Society for Disability Studies which recommends curriculums be (a) interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary, (b) challenge the view of disability as an individual defect that can be remedied through medical intervention, and (c) should include national and international perspectives, policies, literature, culture and history.
