Disability Studies explores the ways in which the lives of people with disabilities are shaped by patterns of injustice, exclusion and discrimination and social, cultural and aesthetic “norms.”
An applied independent thesis project and practical experience in schools and community organizations will ensure you graduate understanding new theoretical and methodological approaches in this relatively new and expansive interdisciplinary field. You will be prepared to make a difference, on the Disability Studies program from Ryerson University.
You’ll be ready to assume leadership roles in management; community development and organizing; policy and planning; advocacy and public action in schools, rehabilitation centres and workplaces.
You may work as an early childhood inclusion facilitator, policy advisor, research analyst, rehabilitation support worker or student success advisor. You may also choose to pursue advanced studies in a range of fields: education, critical disability studies, social work and cultural studies.
