LGBTQ Studies minor

Our program facilitates students’ interactions with faculty members across the university that are working on and studying LGBTQ related topics in a variety of disciplines. The courses they offer as part of the minor examine the diversity of global gender and sexual identities, communities, practices, and politics and develop student’s abilities to critically engage LGBTQ+ identified  individuals’ complex relations to the culture and experience of a heterosexual majority.

General Academic Building, Room 467
