This exciting programme explores disability as an equal opportunities issue by focusing on contemporary organisations and institutionalised practice.
If you're a service provider, practitioner or policy maker who wants to bring theory and practice together, or you're planning a career in the field of disability, you'll explore a range of disability-related issues from theoretical and practical perspectives.
Our core modules allow you to explore the frontiers of research in this rapidly developing field, and focus on social policy for disabled people in education, benefits, housing, transport, employment, health and social support services, as well as recent developments in social research on disability. You'll also choose from optional modules to focus on the topics that best suit your own interests or career plans, from care to disability and development via research training or race and ethnicity studies.
Taught by academics from the Centre for Disability Studies, you'll learn in a stimulating environment where tutors' teaching is informed by their own cutting-edge research.
The interdisciplinary Centre for Disability Studies is at the forefront of international research in the field, using social model approaches that recognise disability as a form of institutional discrimination and social exclusion, rather than a product of physical difference between individuals. You'll benefit from the expertise of researchers from diverse backgrounds, drawing on the experiences and issues raised by the disabled people's movement.
