When you pursue a minor in disability studies, you focus on disability as a social, cultural, and political phenomenon while exploring how it is defined and represented. The program balances theoretical exploration with practical application, helping you understand disability history, cultural representation, social justice and civil rights issues, policy concerns, and current ethical debates.
If you want to turn this interdisciplinary studies minor into a major, consider Truman’s interdisciplinary studies major.
