Minor in Disability Studies
*Please note: The minor is currently offered only to NAU campus based students. DIS 201 & DIS 498C are not offered online.
For undergraduate students at Northern Arizona University, the Minor in Disability Studies provides a foundation of knowledge in disability studies.
You will examine:
- The historical and legal treatment of those with disabilities,
- The role of disability in today’s society
- The concept of “normal” and how it influences our understanding of disability
The minor will challenge you to examine your perception of disabled persons, and think critically about the ways in which disabled persons have experienced inequality and oppression.
