Disability Studies Minor
Students in the minor will gain an interdisciplinary perspective through a series of required introductory and upper level courses. Additionally, disability studies minors will have valuable opportunities to participate in, and contribute to, the Fordham Faculty Working Group on Disability seminars, to attend distinguished lecture and other events (e.g. movie screenings, discussion panels) throughout the year, as well as to engage with the broader community of disability studies scholarship in New York City.
This minor may be of particular interest to those with professional goals in education, human rights, architecture, medicine and allied health, psychology, public policy, social work, and law, as well as to students interested in further academic study in disability studies.
Six courses in disability studies are required for the minor.
