Is anyone here interested in Disability Studies? This has been an interest of mine for many years and I'm actually thinking of completing a Doctorate in the field, but I'm not sure where I'd like to study. I live in California and don't really have the funds to move right now. Does anyone know of a good Disability Studies program in the US? Thanks.
From a quick internet search, it appears there aren't a lot of doctoral programs in disability studies to choose from. The PhD Program in Disability Studies at University of Illinois at Chicago claims the distinction of being the first PhD in the United States dedicated to the field of disability studies and one of only a few such programs in the world. Syracuse University in New York also offers such a program. I can't vouch for how "good" they are, but it would be a place to start.
