Disabilities Studies Certificate

Disability Studies

Employers want to hire graduates who can work with diverse groups of people. Earning a Disability Studies Certificate will highlight a student’s knowledge and experience with people with disabilities.
The Disability Studies certificate is an interdisciplinary program open to UWW students of any major or minor. It requires classes in Sociology and Special Education and offers elective choices in a number of other disciplines, such as Communication Sciences and Disorders, English, and Political Science.
The certificate program may appeal to students who want to expand their studies in ethical and social justice issues; to friends, family members, and allies of people with disabilities; and to students with disabilities themselves. The program supports UW-Whitewater’s proud mission and excellent reputation for serving individuals with disabilities.
