LGBTQ Studies Minor

The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) studies minor is an integrative, interdisciplinary program that examines issues and debates about sexuality and gender. Engaging in the analysis of intersections of sexuality and gender with race, class, and national identity, LGBTQ studies equips students with the strong critical thinking, writing, and leadership skills that will prepare them to enter a wide range of professional fields.
