The LGBTQ studies minor is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary program that will give students a strong foundation for knowledge in lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer history and culture. The minor examines sexualities and identities as complex social, historical and cultural formations and processes. Rather than understand sexualities and identities as merely features of private intimacy or as a result of unchanging biological forces, the LGBTQ minor approaches the study of sexualities and identities in relation to the social construction of race, ethnicity, class, age, religion, ability, nationality, immigrant status, body size and citizenship. This minor takes a global perspective on activism, social and historical change and cross-cultural understandings of sexualities and identities.
