Disability Studies: Leadership and Community - Suspended
Faculty of Health and Community Studies
Suspended: There are no planned intakes for this program. Applications for admission are not being accepted.
The Disability Studies: Leadership and Community (DSLC) program works closely with community agencies, people with disabilities, their families and governments to prepare exceptional graduates with a broad background and the practical skills to help build inclusive communities. Acting as allies, graduates honour the self-determination of people with disabilities in reaching their goals.
This diploma provides a solid theoretical background in disability studies through comprehensive coursework. Supervised field placements provide opportunities for the practical application of theory and a broader educational experience.
Expanding community options for people with disabilities has created an urgent need for qualified professionals to work in a variety of settings. Graduates find employment as early intervention specialists, educational assistants, job coaches, rehabilitation practitioners, and community support. They are respected professionals with a strong sense of social justice and the vision to see the potential in every individual.
