Gender, Women and Sexuality
College of Liberal Arts
  • Program Type: Undergraduate free-standing minor
  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2012
  • Required credits in this minor: 18
The minor focuses on the history, politics, and cultures of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons. Courses explore the diversity of GLBT communities, the history and present conditions of sexual identity formation, and the functioning and institutionalization of ideologies of sexuality in a democratic society. Core courses focus on issues related to the history, culture, social, and political formations; experiences of GLBT people; and GLBT/queer theory. Elective courses are drawn from lists of GLBT-focused courses (emphasizing GLBT issues/experiences) and of GLBT-component courses (having at least one-quarter of their content related to GLBT/queer theory or the history, culture, social, political formations, and experiences of GLBT people).
