LGBTQ Studies Minor

The LBGTQ Studies minor is designed to allow students to explore sexuality and sexual diversity by examining the history and present conditions of sexual and gender formation, as well as ideologies of sexuality, from a range of disciplinary perspectives. Specific courses focus on politics, cultures, representations and literature of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons, as well as ways to analyze and address issues of homophobia, heterosexism and other intersecting forms of oppression.

For additional information about the LBGTQ Studies minor, contact Erin E. O’Connor, Ph.D, Department of History.
