Welcome to the minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies at the University of West Georgia!
This interdisciplinary minor 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. Hence, it appeals to an increasingly diverse student population at UWG, including members of the GLBTQ community. The minor attracts students who actively seek a comfortable, healthy, academic environment to examine and discuss issues relevant to their self-definition and everyday lives. It 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.
