Make a difference in the field of disability rights and social justice with this ground-breaking new online Masters degree in Disability Studies, Rights and Inclusion.

The study of disability has never been more important. Globally, there are around 1 billion disabled people and with an ageing population in many countries this figure is set to rise.

Disability is an important equality and human rights issue, with disabled people more likely to experience poverty and receive fewer education and employment opportunities than non-disabled people.

The online MSc Disability Studies, Rights and Inclusion will support you to recognise, understand and meet the challenges facing disabled people around the world. By studying this innovative online degree, you’ll be equipped to work to ensure that disabled people’s rights are respected, helping to build more inclusive and sustainable societies.

As an online learner you’ll join a global classroom with like-minded learners from around the world, in an accessible and inclusive online environment. Study the course that suits you - with our flexible course structure, you could work towards the Masters qualification, a postgraduate certificate or postgraduate diploma.

Whether you are already active in the field of disability rights, or looking to take your first steps, this course gives you the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to be a change-maker in the field of social justice and disability activism.
