Queer Studies, Minor
The Department of Gender and Sexuality Studies offers a minor in Queer Studies. Taking as a point of departure that sexuality is a complex historical and cultural phenomenon, Queer Studies examines this complexity, drawing upon methods from anthropology, art, art history, biology, history, literature, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. Interdisciplinary insights from area studies, cultural studies, critical legal studies, ethnic studies, gender studies, religious studies, science and technology studies, visual studies, and women’s studies also enrich this area of study.
