Interdisciplinary Disability Studies

  • online

University of Maine

The certificate program is a progressive 12-credit graduate-level curriculum in which individuals from a variety of disciplines and professional backgrounds can study with students and professionals from other fields to acquire specialized knowledge in disability theory, policy and research.

Four online asynchronous courses examine disability theory, policy, and practices that address disability needs, rights and interventions. The Graduate Certificate in Interdisciplinary Disability Studies provides a valuable credential for those currently working in direct services (i.e., rehabilitation, nursing, social work or education); the creation of accessible environments and products (web designer, landscape architect, or engineer); or those interested in or involved with disability and human rights policy. The program is open to individuals who have obtained a baccalaureate degree, including those who seek only the certificate; individuals who want to study in one or more of the courses without seeking the certificate; and students currently matriculated in masters and doctoral programs.
