LGBTQ Studies

Does the idea of living in the home of Vikings past and taking classes like “Homotextuality: Gay and Lesbian Literature,” “LGBITQ Youth and Self Harm,” and “Her Story: Lesbians in Japan and South Korea” sound interesting to you? Imagine traveling across Europe with the “Comparative Women’s and Gender Studies” program through Antioch University and being immersed in the lifestyles of many different peoples. Or, visualize yourself helping organize the Gay Pride in Dublin while interning for the city’s community resource center. If you studying abroad while taking LGBTQ+ courses, you can have all this and more.
