Disability Studies

It has been estimated that nearly 10 percent of the world's population or more than 34 million people in the United States are identified as having a disability. Waubonsee offers courses that are intended to give students working definitions of types of disabilities, expands students' understanding of the impact of a disability throughout the lifespan, as well as provide an overview of various disability models and stereotypes. Students explore the experience of disability through case studies, guest speakers and role play, and focus on improving the quality of life for all people. Interested students can join Delta Sigma Omicron service fraternity.
