Gender and Sexualities Studies

This Cluster includes a diverse selection of courses that foregrounds gender and sexuality as they relate to course material in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Students explore how gender and sexuality are contemporary socially-constructed concepts and deconstruct the labels and binaries society has placed on their experiences. By offering a profound sense of belonging, students engage in theoretical, personal, and social aspects of various sources in order to navigate their ideas and bodies toward deeper understanding of one’s own, as well as others’, experiences through critical thinking and community engagement.
