Educational goals of the College of Disability Sciences

From multidisciplinary integration to the development of a new discipline, and further, to the development of human resources who can contribute to society

The College of Disability Sciences supports the diversified educational needs of its individual students. It has an extensive faculty with expertise in a wide variety of fields. Students wishing to become expert in the practice of educational, psychological and human welfare support can study and acquire not merely such expertise but also practical methods of applying it on site. In addition, students can extend their basic study of support methods deeper into the fields of psychology, education or human welfare, as well as exploring more conceptual issues such as “What is disability all about?”, “How does the society look, in which people with and without disabilities can live together?”, etc. Students can pursue the comprehensive study of disability in general based on the three course curriculum models; and, after having mastered the basics of the subject, can proceed to study a specific aspect of disability in depth.

Students will find their four years at the College of Disability Sciences an indispensable and highly significant period in the compass of their broader life, whether they aim to be an expert or researcher on the education or welfare of those with disabilities, or to learn about disability and people with disabilities at the university.
