Queer Studies Minor
|Queer Studies is a rapidly growing field of study that focuses on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, their history, and culture.
Queer Studies grew out of feminist scholarship into a distinct field of inquiry.
Queer Studies is inter-disciplinary, drawing upon cultural and social history, theory, sociology, psychology, theatre, anthropology, law and political science, among other fields.
Queer Studies is a method of inquiry that explores the role of same-sex desire across and among cultures and histories.
Queer Studies considers sexualities and genders as identities, social statuses, categories of knowledge, and as lenses that help us to frame how we understand our world.
