Through an interdisciplinary curriculum, this innovative program provides students with the knowledge base and theoretical means to question conventional understandings of the “normal” body and mind. Both core and elective courses analyze disability and the lives of people with disabilities as they are represented in history, literature, sociology, anthropology, architecture and other humanities-based disciplines.
The program is a perfect complement to an education in the medical and clinical fields, for professionals and pre-professionals in fields such as rehabilitation science, occupational and physical therapy, nursing, social work, and various support services, as well as architecture and planning. The program will also be of interest to public school teachers and administrators developing curriculum for primary and secondary schools in disability-related subject matter; and to those graduate students in other disciplines who may be interested in thinking in complex ways about the body, gender, sex, sexuality, and race.
