University of Illinois at Chicago - Institute on Disability and Human Development

PhD in Disability Studies: UIC's program offers the first PhD dedicated to Disability Studies in the United States and is one of only a few such programs in the world. With its interdisciplinary nature, the program offers access to diverse faculty mentors and resources in the health fields, social sciences, and humanities. Students conduct research across impairment, clinical, social, cultural, ethical, and policy perspectives. Faculty and students examine how addressing disability in its full complexity can promote the full participation, self-determination, and equal citizenship of people with disabilities in society.
