Minor in Queer Studies

Queer Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that focuses on non-normative sexuality as a primary category of analysis. Queer Studies starts from the assumption that sexuality is central to human social organization; is always experienced in continually shifting contexts; and lived in relation to race, religion, class, nation, and gender. Its methods and premises grow out of scholarship on gender and thus is housed in the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Department.
