Our minor programs and General Education courses provide students with multidisciplinary perspectives on human sexuality. These include such wide-ranging areas as the biology of sexuality; sexual health education; the history of sexuality; social justice movements for sexual and gender minorities; sexuality in the arts and literature; and cross-cultural explorations of sexuality. In all of our teaching and research, we aspire to create inclusion and endeavor to challenge our students and expect excellence from them.
