Overview

It is now possible to minor in disability studies through Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies. For more information, contact Patrick Civello 510-643-7691 orĀ civello@berkeley.edu.

The Disability Studies minor centers the knowledge and experience of disabled people, studying cultural and artistic productions, public laws and policies, professional practices, and everyday life with an emphasis on disability as a social situation and a political process. Our approach is interdisciplinary, aiming to integrate the study of disability into academic fields across the campus; it is intersectional; and it makes and draws on long-standing connections between scholarship and activism, locally and globally.
