Offered by Gender, Women’s, + Sexuality Studies , this interdisciplinary minor is designed for students in any major who also want a concentration in the study of sexuality. The minor investigates the historical, political, and social life of sexuality both transhistorically and transnationally. Special attention is paid to how sexuality intersects with other differences, including gender, race, class, religion, nationality, disability and age, and how power, resistance, and life chances are differently distributed at these intersections. This minor empowers students to imagine a more just future and equips them with the tools to collectively enact it.
The minor provides a strong foundation of critical reading, writing, and thinking skills that prepares students for work or graduate school in a variety of fields, including psychology, law, social work, medicine, nonprofit management, human resources, and more.
