No, but it can be useful towards one. 

Our Program is a 15 credit sequence of 5 courses resulting in a graduate level Certificate. Our program is a great stepping stone or supplement to other graduate programs. Many Master’s and Doctoral students use our courses as cognates for other programs. Graduate and Undergraduate Disability Studies courses can also be taken as electives without enrollment in the Certificate Program. Applicants are encouraged to check with prospective graduate programs to see how the Certificate may be useful and may apply to their program.
