Disability Studies Minor
For information, contact the Department of Sociology and Gerontology, 375 Upham Hall, 513-529-2628.
This minor offers a broad liberal arts approach to the study of disability. It provides students with knowledge of the historical, social, artistic, literary, legal, educational, philosophical and political framing of disability. Students develop a strong interdisciplinary foundation, with emphasis on cultural constructions of disability, and the intersections of disability, race, gender, sex, age, class and other markers of diversity and difference. Students have the opportunity to enhance this foundation by extending their learning into the community through the senior capstone internship and/or independent research requirement.
(18 semester hours)
Take the required courses, no more than two additional courses at the 100-200 level, and the capstone experience.
