About Gender & Sexuality Studies

Gender & Sexuality Studies is one of the concentrations that students may choose as a Social Science contract major, offered through the School of Social Science and Human Services.

The Gender and Sexuality Studies concentration focuses on interdisciplinary scholarship about women, gender, and sexuality across cultures and their intersections with race, class, nationality, ability, age, among others. Students will also become acquainted with the current realities and history of feminism, gender, and sexualities in the U.S. and worldwide. Through courses in Gender and Sexuality Studies students gain a clearer sense of how to be engaged, ethical participants in the social world. The concentration is a logical component of a student’s preparation for a career in law, business, public health, the social services, and teaching.

To complete the Gender & Sexuality Studies concentration within the Social Science contract major, within the 11 courses required for the major, students must complete one required course (either PSYC 335: Sexualities & Gender Identities: LGBTQA+ or SOSC 280: Women in Contemporary Society) and three electives that focus on issues related to Gender & Sexuality Studies.
