UToledo offers new graduate certificate focused on working professionals

The Disability Studies Program at the University of Toledo has launched a new online graduate certificate focused on working professionals. The graduate certificate in disability studies was developed in conjunction with The Ability Center of Great Toledo, the region's independent living center, and is ideal for working professionals and graduate students seeking advancement in a wide range of areas, including policy, education, advocacy, compliance, medical and allied health, and many others. Program Director Dr. Kim Nielsen notes "The graduate certificate is meant to provide participants the tools they need to combine theory and practice to emerge as effective subject matter experts." 

All classes are offered exclusively online, helping students balance work, life and studies. Those enrolled will complete 12 credit hours of courses designed to challenge barriers by promoting integration, inclusive professional practices, the understanding of disability law, and engaging in bold imagining. The University of Toledo's Disability Studies faculty are skilled scholars and excellent teachers. Each has taken extensive training in online education and the courses have been evaluated by online teaching experts.

Those interested in learning more may visit the graduate certificate webpage or contact Kim Nielsen at [email protected]. The program is current accepting applications for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.
