The disabilities movement motto, “Nothing about us, without us,” captures the motivation for the Disability Studies program.
Disabilities Studies provides students with the knowledge and experience-based practice they can use to advocate for:
Students can become an advocate for accessibility and social justice. The material taught in this program is derived from people with disabilities and their lived experiences. The knowledge students gain is grounded in the real world and the University of Windsor enhances the theory they learn with practice. The placements and volunteer opportunities offered through this program add value to their degree.
Through course work and community experience placements in disabilities settings, students learn advocacy skills to prepare for work in academic, health, social service and government organizations.
The need for leaders versed in the liberal arts, social sciences, and the professions has never been greater. Voices are needed to remind humanity of its essential diversity, and its fragile and complex character. They are needed to remind everyone that leaders are meant to guide—not lead—humanity, that social justice is not just an academic study, that compassion is sacred and that human beings are part of nature.
The Disability Studies and Psychology program involves training in both psychology and disability studies. It focuses on psychological and social models of disability and exposes students to real-world learning experiences.
