Certificate in Disability Rights, Policy, and Services

The certificate consists of 12 total credits. Coursework consists of two required courses and two electives, equally distributed between the School of Education and the School of Social Work. The purpose of this interdisciplinary certificate is to:

  1. provide a pathway for professionals within and outside of these disciplines to obtain graduate education about disability-related services, policies, and practices to prepare them for leadership roles in the field;
  2. help learners stretch, cross, and connect disciplinary boundaries while learning about the disability field in a more holistic manner than any single discipline can achieve;
  3. provide learners with a strong grounding in the values and approaches that are intimately related to inclusion, equity, and human rights, which are critical to the development of our future leaders.
