A Minor in Sexuality Studies is an ideal option for students who are committed to understand how sexualities are produced, articulated, and enacted over time and space.
The Minor in Sexuality Studies will foster critical thinking, creativity, applied knowledge, and communication skills. Courses in the minor will address major questions of sexuality from a feminist and queer studies point of view, including: What is meant by the concepts of “sex,” “gender,” and “sexual desire” and how have these concepts changed across time and place? What is the relationship among sex, gender, and sexual desire in different contexts? And how have those categories been created, contested and deployed?
A Sexuality Studies minor is the perfect complement to a wide range of majors, including psychology, public health, management, sociology, law, nursing, public health, or interdisciplinary social sciences degrees. This degree makes students more competitive for employment and internships in fields including social work, counseling, education, social services, government, non-profit advocacy, health care, and the arts.

I like how thoroughly the teachers explain philosophy and how it connects to current/ historical events because I can transfer that information between different GGS and non-GGS classes.
