Minor: Queer Studies
(QS)

The Queer Studies (QS) minor is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary program whose goal is the study of sexuality as a complex historical and cultural formation. Rather than understand sexuality as merely a feature or private intimacy or as a result of unchanging biological forces, the QS minor approaches the study of sexuality in relation to the social construction of gender, race, ability, class, and citizenship. Queer Studies focuses on the social and political forces shaping norms (particularly, those pertaining to sexuality, gender expression, and family formation) and conversely how these norms can be challenged.
