About

University of Massachusetts Boston's School for Global Inclusion and Social Development is New England's only academic center for preparing teachers of students with visual impairment, orientation and mobility specialists, vision rehabilitation therapists, and assistive technology instructional specialists. We offer a master degree in Vision Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston. 

Overview

These are four key focus areas that assist people with visual impairment to achieve their goals of high-quality education, fulfilling employment, safe independent travel, and access to technology.

At the University of Massachusetts Boston we offer a bachelor degree in Vision Studies. In our interconnected world, it is more important than ever for global policy organizations, governments, and communities to apply principles of global inclusion and to ensure social development for all.

Global inclusion practices ensure that everyone can participate in the social, economic, cultural, political, and civil aspects of their communities. Social development is a process of improving human and collective well-being through interventions in social policy, public policy, service delivery, and nonprofit activity at several levels: micro (individuals and families), mezzo (agencies and neighborhoods), and macro (larger communities, governments, and nations).
