Minor in LGBTQ Studies

The LGBTQ Studies Minor provides students with an intersectional analysis of how LGBTQ identities and community have been (and continue to be) shaped historically, socially, philosophically, culturally, medically, and scientifically. It creates a space for critical inquiry around how sexual and gender minorities are affected by society's normative perceptions and practices, while also exploring ways various LGBTQ communities and individuals have responded. 

Please note that WGS majors cannot also receive a minor in LGBTQ studies because the two degrees are offered through the same department.
