One in five people in the US have at least one disability, and 35% of the working-age people with disabilities are employed, and about 15% of people worldwide live with a disability. The Certificate in Disability Justice, Rights, and Policy Studies is, therefore, designed to give students a structured introduction to this important topic. The certificate requires 12 credit hours (3 courses) and is available to both non-degree-seeking students and students in other DePaul undergraduate degree programs. Students in undergraduate programs can complete the certificate as part of their elective requirements, typically without any impact on time to degree completion or number of courses. Administered by the School of Public Service in collaboration with Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies (PAX), please contact PPSAdvising@depaul.edu for more information.
With the consent of an advisor, students can replace PPS 368 with a 300-level course on a topic related to Disability Justice, Rights, and Policy Studies.
