Disability Equality Studies

Interested in Disability Equality Studies?

Imagine living in a world where a person might have an impairment but not be disabled. A world where impairments are seen as ‘normal’, because physical and social environments are accessible to everyone,  where non-disabled people aren’t afraid of saying the wrong thing to a disabled person, because having an impairment, visible or hidden, is accepted as being part of life, not something strange that should arouse sympathy. 

St. Angela’s College, Sligo has a vision – that disabled people are visible, empowered and participating in every sphere of public and private life. If you share this vision, you could play a key role in helping to achieve it through one of the programmes.

The Disability Equality Studies course allows you to study in a way that suits you from anywhere in the world.. With online and recorded lectures and workshops in various locations, the programme provides opportunities to those not able to study full-time. 

There are 3 options available – a Stand-alone part-time Module, a Certificate in Disability Studies and a BA in Disability Equality Studies (with a 2 year Diploma option). 

Students will be equipped to challenge existing concepts of disability and can contribute towards a more equal society. Albert J. a first year student says “As a mature Disabled person I never thought there was so much to learn about Disability. This course is leading the way in changing the attitudes of society to Disability and the Disabled.”

The  B.A. in Health & Disability Studies is the only level 8 undergraduate programme in Ireland with a disability focus. Gradutates from the programme currently work in a variety of settings; in disability and community sector, in direct service provision. Some have pursued further studies in speech and language therapy, and occupational therapy, Applied Behaviour Analysis, community development, and postgraduate disability studies.
Applications will be open on April 3rd 2017

With flexible learning options, this part-time/online programme is offered at Stand Alone Module, Certificate, Diploma and BA levels.
