Accessibility Studies Certificate

The accessibility studies certificate provides an interdisciplinary opportunity to learn about the challenges facing people with disabilities and limitations, estimated to be nearly a fifth of the population. The accessibility studies certificate documents the graduate’s demonstration of competence in recognizing where, when, and how to accommodate such needs. Competence includes facilitating accessible transitions and employment for people with disabilities and limitations, approached from the different perspectives of employers, social service agencies, commercial enterprises, and the people requiring access themselves. This competence is attractive to employers who must all comply with legislation, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, intended to protect entitlement to activities of independent living in all environments- work, home, school, shopping, medical, leisure, and virtual. The accessibility studies certificate is a professional development opportunity of value to most fields.
