X University School of Disability Studies

Disability Studies at Ryerson is the first in Canada to provide a degree education exclusively from a disability studies perspective. The program is built upon foundations of inclusion and social justice, and offers an approach that is consistent with Ryerson’s reputation for professionally relevant education. Integrating theory and practice, our students and faculty pursue scholarship that serves, shapes and animates disability movements in Canada and globally. Drawing from the work of scholars, artists and activists and building from students’ personal and professional experiences, our program engages learners in a transformative process of reflection, debate and discovery.
