Why choose Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality?
Sexuality plays a large role in the way society organizes itself, shaping how we develop a sense of self and build relationships. In a world where our ideas about sexuality are being contested and transformed, an interdisciplinary academic approach anchors knowledge as you develop insight into the complex and sometimes contradictory understandings of sexuality across history and in diverse contexts today.
Areas of focus include the study of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, intersex, queer, asexual, heterosexual, pansexual, monogamous, non-monogamous, and polyamourous lives, at the intersections of feminism, gender, race, class, politics, culture and more. Courses highlight Indigenous, Black, migrant, diasporic, transnational, decolonizing, postcolonial, disability, and other critical frameworks, and you’ll cross traditional disciplinary boundaries by engaging with sexuality in areas like art history, film, biology, religion, and sociology, to name just a few.
