The skills to envision an inclusive world.
The tools to create it.
Blending courses from across campus, we put the voices and lives of people with disabilities front and center. We study all kinds of bodymind variations, whether visible or invisible. While housed in the English Department, the minor is open to all UO majors and enfolds fields across the social sciences, arts, humanities, and professions. Many of our courses also count for General Education requirements. You’ll gain direct contact with disability communities through innovative fieldwork options.
Show your Disability Studies pride!

Starting in Winter 2020, WGS 221 will count for the Disability Studies Minor only on a case-by-case basis. You will need to take ENG 240, next offered in spring 2020, to satisfy the Core Course requirement instead. Please contact Prof. Wheeler if you have any questions about this change.
