Undergraduate Programs

Our Minor Programs and General Education courses provide students with multidisciplinary perspectives on human sexuality ranging from the biology of sexuality to sexual health education, from the history of sexuality to social justice movements for sexual and gender minorities, from sexuality in the arts and literature to 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.
