Career Potential

Most students who minor in Disability Studies are preparing for careers in medicine, rehabilitation, audiology, and education, especially special education. Given the numerous legal and ethical issues inherent in disability, Disability Studies is also excellent preparation for careers in law, journalism, and politics. Given the increasing presence of persons with disabilities in the workplace, Disability Studies is also good preparation for careers in business. The minor's two dedicated courses--Disability Studies 1, Introduction to Disability Studies, and DSST 2, Disability in Literature and Culture--will help students develop their skills in argument and analysis; further, the interdisciplinary nature of the courses and the minor as a whole encourages students to look at problems from multiple perspectives and in flexible and innovative ways.
