Disability Studies Minor

Study Across Disciplines

When you pursue a disability studies minor, you focus on disability as a social and political phenomenon and explore how disability is defined and represented.

 Learning Useful Pursuits

Disability is a constant, pervasive, and often misunderstood element of human existence, and virtually everyone will have a disability at some point due to an accident, disease or old age.  The courses you choose for this program balance theoretical exploration with practical application, helping you understand disability history, cultural representation, social justice and civil rights issues, policy concerns, and current ethical debates.

Pursue Further

At Truman, students study everything and discover the fascinating ways different areas of study are connected. Disability Studies is one of several interdisciplinary studies minors available for you to explore the new possibilities that open up when two or more fields overlap. Our interdisciplinary studies major even allows you to custom-design your own field of study.
