Disability Studies in Education ​

**Disability Studies** is an academic field that recognises disability is fundamental to all human lives. It acknowledges the wider history of oppression and discrimination experienced by disabled people and seeks to educate people to challenge those inequalities. Informed by this perspective, the Disability Studies in Education degree **examines the relationship between disability and education** at all life stages and in a wide range of educational contexts. On this degree, **you will undertake a critical exploration** of disability and education in a wide range of contexts, from the ways in which compulsory education responds to the needs of disabled children, young people and adults, to the ways in which arts-based and cultural organisations work with disabled people and images of disability. There is also a **compulsory placement** that will enable you to enhance your understanding of course themes and demonstrate your abilities to work in a professional context. **Why study this degree at Liverpool Hope?** + Links with agencies and disability organisations + Integration with the **University’s Research Centre for Culture and Disability Studies** (CCDS) + Excellent preparation for working with and on behalf of disabled people in a range of contexts
