DIS 1010 Rethinking Disability


Disability is a natural part of the human experience and the effects of a disability will likely impact every person across their lifespan. This course will provide a basic understanding of disability as a social construct and influence students’ perceptions of the experience of living with a disability in today’s society. Students will explore myths and stigmas about disability as well as issues of access and accommodations within multiple environments. This course is for students with and without disabilities, and may be of special interest to students exploring careers in education, public policy and government, sociology, psychology, technology and health professions.
