Gender, Sexuality and Intersectionality Studies Major
In this major, students gain an in-depth understanding of gender, sexuality, and other social categories of identity and experience through an interdisciplinary framework. Students cultivate intellectual depth and breadth through coursework; learn how to build a unique scholarly and activism-informed perspective; are challenged to communicate ideas clearly and constructively through a dynamic mix of traditional assignments and creative popularly-oriented formats; and learn how to conceptualize, practice, and evaluate social change theories, tactics, and strategies through project-based work. The knowledge and capacities cultivated in the major prepare students for future endeavors, such as participating in a diverse and complex workforce, as well as graduate study in fields such as law school, social work, public policy, and public health.
Majors must complete a total of nine courses, consisting of five required courses and four electives.
All GSIS Courses may count as electives, as do the courses listed below. No more than one extra-departmental elective may be taken in the same department.
