If you want to work with individuals with disabilities outside the classroom, this is the degree for you. Our unique degree will provide you the opportunity to experience working in a nonprofit or therapy setting — and even start your own business.
You'll increase in confidence as you work with Lipscomb's IDEAL students. And you'll apply what you've learned off-site in a practicum with a nonprofit agency for people with disabilities. Our accomplished faculty will counsel you in your mission along the way.
With a top-tier university education on your resume, you’ll be in high demand, whether you choose to launch your career or begin graduate school. Most of our programs have a placement rate of at least 90 percent within six months of graduation.
Learn from award-winning, experienced faculty who actually care about you. Our small class sizes allow us to get to know you personally. We lead an approachable community within our respective programs. Our faculty connections are the experts on their subject matter, too.
A big city. An even bigger opportunity. We consider Nashville an extension of our classroom, and as a leading city in many industries, that means you’ll gain experience and insight you won’t find anywhere else.
