We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Disability in Society explore the ways in which disability affects (and is affected by) social institutions and relationships. These programmes typically span several disciplines, such as Sociology, Education and Social Work.
Closely related postgraduate specialisms include Disability Studies, Special Educational Needs and Learning Difficulties. Courses are available in several forms, including MAs, MScs, PGDips and PGCerts.
Choosing a Masters in Disability Studies gives you the chance to make a real difference to society, equipping you with the skills and knowledge to improve inclusion, access and support.
Courses usually feature a combination of theory and practice-based learning, providing you with a well-rounded understanding of disability and its methodologies. You may examine and assess social policy, for example, exploring issues related to benefits, housing and education. Depending on the programme, you could also have the opportunity to undertake training in qualitative and quantitative research methods, eventually producing your own piece of important research.
Disability in Society postgraduates may find themselves employed in healthcare, social services, education, charity and human resources (HR). Alternatively, you might carry on your studies to PhD level and forge a career in academia.
