The Interdisciplinary Health Studies doctoral program at Western Michigan University offers most of its coursework through  distance education or evening and weekend classes. Note that this program is in the College of Health and Human Services, not Special Education. The program is research intensive but the particular interest of faculty members in blindness is quite wide. We have one of the largest departments in the country with research being conducted on orientation and mobility, braille, sports education, biomechanics, among other things. Several of our faculty have a child focus.
