Minor in Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Studies

Program Scope

Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Studies intends to delineate and analyze meanings that have been associated with homosexuality in various artistic, biological, cultural, educational, ethical, historical, and literary contexts; and examine the related issues of mixed-gender and cross-gender roles and practices.

The minor is broadly interdisciplinary. It draws courses from anthropology, biology, cinema, counseling, English, history, human sexuality studies, psychology, NEXA, social sciences, speech and communication studies, and women studies. The university also offers a Minor in Human Sexuality Studies. See Index for page reference.
