The minor in Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA) Studies introduces students to the social, political, historical, and psychological complexities of the diverse nature of gender and sexuality.
LGBTQIA Studies is a challenging and multidisciplinary field that includes an exploration of queer theory—an interdisciplinary and revolutionary critique of identity itself that challenges the most basic assumptions of Western culture. Through becoming proficient in analytic skills such as queer reading of texts, research methodologies and their limitations, ethnography, and deconstruction, along with the opportunity to contemplate, research, and design solutions for contemporary problems facing LGBTQIA populations, students will emerge as original thinkers engaged in advanced scholarly work.
The following requirements below are intended for students declared after Fall 2022. If you have already declared your minor, please speak to your academic advisor for assistance.
