Interdisciplinary Study of Disabilities


The Certificate of Graduate Study in ISD provides education, social services, healthcare, other professionals, and individuals with disabilities and their family members, access to a cohesive and relevant course of study to enhance their education and instructional knowledge of Disability Studies. The certificate includes a total of 18 credits, 9 in core courses and 9 in approved elective courses. Two options are offered:

  1. Establish a general understanding of disabilities and of related interdisciplinary practices across disciplines;
  2. Combine core courses with the focused study of a specific disability or related practice area.

The certificate was created through a partnership between Special Education and Communication Science Disorders. The courses listed are from those programs, but they are not the only courses that can be used for the certificate.
