The purpose of the Disability Studies Certificate Program is to provide the students at the University of Georgia with the knowledge, skills, and values needed to become professionals and leaders who are capable of implementing change in attitudes, policy, and practice across the nation. These professionals will promote the true inclusion of all individuals with disabilities as fully-participating members of our communities and nation, with all the rights accorded to every citizen.
Potential students include those from the educational, medical, and social sciences, but also include students from virtually every discipline including history, the arts, and humanities. The certificate is available to undergraduate students from any school or college at UGA.
Currently enrolled UGA students who have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 are eligible to apply.
