Careers

The Disability Studies program prepares students for leadership roles in management, community development, advocacy, policy and planning. In addition to fulfilling specific career objectives, many people will enrol in the program to enhance their capacities as advocates and change-agents.

There is no single career trajectory for our students after graduation. Instead, graduates from the School of Disability Studies have found themselves advancing in a wide range of disability-related careers. They work for local School Boards, Government Ministries, Associations for Community Living, Accessibility Advisory Committees, Mental Health Associations, University Access Centres and a wide range of community and peer-support agencies. Many others pursue graduate study in such disciplines as education, social work, psychology and disability studies.
