Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Disability Studies and Psychology
The need for leaders versed in the liberal arts, social sciences, and the professions has never been greater. Voices are needed to remind humanity of its essential diversity, and its fragile and complex character. They are needed to remind us that leaders are meant to guide—not lead—humanity, that social justice is not just an academic study, that compassion is sacred and that human beings are part of nature.
The Disability Studies and Psychology program involves training in both psychology and disability studies. It focuses on psychological and social models of disability and exposes students to real-world learning experiences.
Disability Studies provides students with the knowledge and experience-based practice they can use to advocate for:
- Social justice
- Anti-oppressive needs
- Accessibility for people with disabilities.
Through course work and community experience placements in disabilities settings, students learn advocacy skills to prepare for work in academic, health, social service and government organizations.
