LGBTQIA+ Studies

The perspectives gained while studying abroad are invaluable—both personally and professionally. Access to different classes and internship opportunities can set you apart on graduate school applications and in job interviews. A journey abroad can help piece together the bigger picture on what it means to identify as LGBTQIA+ in this world.

Germany

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” at the University of Oslo in Norway 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.
