Bachelor of Inclusive Education and Disability Studies

Contemporary understanding of disability acknowledges the rights of people with a disability to be full and participating members of society. Many people with a disability, particularly those with learning and intellectual disabilities, require either episodic or lifelong support to take their rightful place in society.

The course is designed to provide a specialisation in community or school education. You will develop a holistic view of disability and of the social structures that influence learning and development for people with a disability. This includes the theoretical frameworks for understanding disability, social justice and empowerment, advocacy, influence of disability on learning, social dynamics and positive behaviour support. The Bachelor of Inclusive Education and Disability Studies is for students who want a career in disability or human service management. Students will develop a holistic view of disability and the social structures that influence learning and development for people with a disability. This includes areas such as: ·

  • social justice and empowerment
  • advocacy
  • the influence of disability on learning
  • social dynamics and positive behaviour support.

Students can tailor the course to their interests by selecting topics in assessment tasks, fieldwork components and the selection of specialisation units. There is a mix of assignment and project-based assessments to help integrate practice and theory.
