Requirements for a Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies
The interdisciplinary minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies provides an academic forum for the examination of gender and sexuality in contemporary and historical global cultures. It pursues the academic study not only of sexual diversity but also of masculinity and femininity as culturally and historically contingent phenomena. As such, it appeals to an increasingly diverse student population, including members of the GLBTQ community, who actively seek a comfortable, healthy, academic environment to examine and discuss issues relevant to their self-definition and everyday lives. The minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies also creates a broad and formalized academic forum for educating the entire student population and the greater Carrollton community about diversity in gender identity and sexual orientation.
The minor requires 15 credit hours, of which no more than 6 hours can be at the 2000 level and of which at least 3 hours must be at the 4000 level. Required Course: XIDS 2100: Introduction to Gender Studies (3 hours)
Electives – 12 hours (four of these must be taken in AT LEAST two different disciplines). Electives must be approved by the program director. A list of approved courses may be obtained each semester from the Director of the Minor, Dr. Jeffrey Zamostny (Foreign Languages and Literatures; firstname.lastname@example.org).
