Queer Studies Minor

Also available via Ecampus.

The undergraduate minor in Queer Studies prepares students to examine how gender and sexuality are constructed and policed and, further, imagines liberatory futures for people of all genders and sexualities. Centering itself on the activism and scholarship of women of color, transnational feminisms, Two-Spirit Indigenous people, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) people of color, this minor examines homophobia and transphobia's relationship with racism, colonialism, sexism, ableism, classism and other forms of power.

A total of 33 credits is required for the minor, with at least 12 of these credits at the upper-division level.
