Disability Studies  is a unique course for people working or wanting to be employed  in the disability sector.  It attracts both disabled and non-disabled students eager to understand oppression, exclusion and the politics of disability.  The course is delivered in a participative, non-threatening way through a series of intertwining modules.   The modules enable students to understand current theories and debates of disability, along with tutorials on Independent Living, universal access, social inclusion and general equality issues.  If you’re looking to challenge and be challenged regarding the assumptions surrounding disability in an enjoyable yet provocative  way then disability studies will give you this learning opportunity. On completion students will have explored  such topics as models of disability (medical vs social), legislation, access, gender, sexuality, equality issues name but a few.
