Thinking about which educational program to pursue?
Consider the Master of Arts (M.A.) in “Humanities–Interdisciplinary” with a formal Concentration in Disability Studies
The University at Buffalo is now offering a new program that provides students with the knowledge base and theoretical means to question conventional understandings of the “normal” body and mind through a non-medical and non-clinical interdisciplinary curriculum. Both core and elective courses analyze disability and the lives of people with disabilities as they are represented in history, literature, sociology, anthropology, and other disciplines.
The program is a perfect complement to an education in the medical and clinical fields, for professionals and pre-professionals in fields such as rehabilitative and occupational therapy, nursing, social work, and various support services.
