Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies
This minor introduces students to the field of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Studies. The minor is open and welcoming to all students and offers a sustained opportunity to learn about LGBT experience, history and scholarship, as well as explore fundamental questions about sexualities, bodies, identities, communities, social movements and liberation politics. As an interdisciplinary field, LGBT Studies critically examine the significance of sexuality and gender identity to social organization, cultural production and historical change from a wide range of academic disciplines. The flexibility of the minor curriculum allows students to focus their studies in a particular area of interest, intersect with their major(s) or explore a diverse array of topics across different cultures and historical periods. The minor also offers a range of courses through SU Abroad programs.
The LGBT Studies minor can provide specialized knowledge and critical skills that are valuable in a wide range of careers, including health, social work, education, law, communications, artistic practice, politics and business.
