Coordinator: Julie Maybee, Philosophy

The minor in Disability Studies will provide students with a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to disability issues that is focused on the experiences of people with disabilities as they work toward full participation in society. The minor will be particularly valuable for those students who are majoring in fields that may lead to employment in service professions such as Health Education and Promotion, Health Services Administration, Nursing, Recreation Education (especially Therapeutic Recreation), Social Work, Sociology, Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, and Psychology.
