Critical Disability Studies

Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Graduate Studies
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Disability Studies
Description The MA (Critical Disability Studies) explores disability studies from a critical perspective. It is unique in that it contributes to emerging research examining the systemic social, political, legal and economic barriers to the full societal inclusion of persons with disabilities. The program’s interdisciplinary approach is informed by various academic fields including law, anthropology, health studies, geography, economics, education, labour studies, political science, social work, sociology, identity politics, gender studies, refugee and immigration studies, history and aging studies. Theories of human rights form the basis for understanding how existing legal, economic and social rationales for inclusion relate to systemic inequality and oppression.
