Disability Studies in Education ​

Disability Studies is an academic field which recognises that disability is fundamental to all human lives. It acknowledges the wider history of oppression and discrimination experienced by disabled people and seeks to produce knowledge that challenges those inequalities. Informed by this perspective, this degree examines the relationship between disability and education at all life stages and in a wide range of educational contexts. Education is lifelong, and in the course, 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. This programme also includes a compulsory placement that will enable you to enhance your understanding of course themes and demonstrate your abilities to work in a professional context.
