Integrated Studies at Millersville University is a four-year post-secondary initiative for young adults with intellectual disability who are interested in participating in an academic vocational and social university experience, who have completed or are near completion of a high school program, and who are currently or were formerly eligible for a free appropriate public education under the individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

An individual plan for college participation (vocational, academic, & residential) is developed for each student for each semester they are enrolled in Integrated Studies. Integrated Studies embraces the principles of access and equity to all opportunities in society and promoted the advancement of academic knowledge, social skills and career options for individuals with intellectual disabilities. This four-year program allows students to access learning opportunities in three main areas:

  • academic participation
  • career exploration and employment
  • social membership

Foundational experiences in each of these areas enhances the acquisition of specific independent living skills, in preparation for graduation from college and success in a work-focused environment. Integrated Studies will offer a variety of higher education experiences individualized to particular student desire and need.
