The Disability Studies Program is offered by Lipscomb’s College of Education which is consistently ranked as one of the most effective educator preparation programs in the state of Tennessee and the nation.
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.
