The Master of Arts program in the Department of Sociology and Sexuality Studies provides an integrative and comprehensive graduate degree for students interested in studying and working with issues related to human sexuality, sexuality education, research, and social policy. It offers an interdisciplinary curriculum in the study of sexuality, with particular emphasis on theory, research, and application. Sexual and cultural diversity and their relevant historical, social, developmental, and biological aspects are considered. It investigates the assumptions and applications surrounding current methodologies of the major disciplines that are presently concerned with human sexuality. It enables students to understand varied and often contradictory policies around which sexuality has been formulated, generating a perspective through which they will be able to formulate new and improved solutions to these issues. Department applications will be available October 1, 2017.
