Lifespan Developmental Sciences is an academic field that pursues a better adaptation of humans to life stages ranging from birth to death. At the rehabilitation course, we aim to establish a practical science from the viewpoint of rehabilitation science. We seek a solution and create a vision regarding problems faced by persons who have a disability or illness and need human support throughout their lifespan development process.
The rehabilitation course has four scientific fields as its basic structure, including medicine, education, sociology and vocation, as well as major areas of disability including vision, hearing, intellectual, mobility and health, elderly and mental impairments. Students will systematically study the broad field of rehabilitation science from the viewpoint of lifespan development, get involved in discussions on various ways of cooperation, and work on writing a master’s thesis as part of their individual research project.
